Ben­nett banks on Mar­shall for fi­nals ef­fort

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

BENJI Mar­shall may not have played his last game for the Bron­cos yet with Wayne Ben­nett sav­ing his Tigers­bound su­per sub for a pos­si­ble fi­nals cameo.

Mar­shall yes­ter­day inked a one- year deal to re­turn to the Wests Tigers in 2018 af­ter de­cid­ing to quit the Bron­cos af­ter one sea­son.

The for­mer Ki­wis cap­tain could have stayed at Red Hill next year, how­ever the $ 100,000 con­tract on of­fer was not enough to keep Mar­shall in Bris­bane colours.

In­stead he will make a fairy­tale re­turn to Wests Tigers, the club he started his ca­reer at in 2003, won the 2005 pre­mier­ship and played 201 NRL games for.

Mar­shall, 32, has played nine matches for the Bron­cos this sea­son but has been over­looked by Ben­nett for the past two and has not played for Redcliffe in the In­trust Su­per Cup ei­ther.

Tigers re­cruit Benji Mar­shall.
