Benji Marshall set to make shock career move

Melbourne Storm v Brisbane Broncos

Benji Marshall is set to retire from rugby league.

The 36-year-old is expected to announce his retirement as the NRL play-offs progress as he has not been offered a new contract by South Sydney Rabbitohs.

After almost 350 NRL games under his belt, Marshall was linked with a move to Super League last year, with Hull FC apparently having enquired about his availability.

However, the veteran halfback made the move to the Rabbitohs after being pushed out at Wests Tigers.

With a career that started in 2003 at the Tigers, Marshall has been at the top of his game for almost two decades, winning the Dally M five-eighth of the year award in 2011, Golden Boot Award in 2010 and was even named the RLIF Five-Eighth of the Year in 2009 and 2011.
