Benji Marshall coy on New Zealand future

New Zealand captain Benji Marshall says he doesn’t know if he has played for his country for the last time.

The 34-year-old inspired the Kiwis to a 23-8 victory over Great Britain in Christchurch on Saturday.

Marshall, who has earned 31 caps for New Zealand, has not decided on whether he will retire from the international stage.

He said: “I didn’t want this week to be about me. I haven’t really thought about it, it could be my last but I don’t know. We’ll address that later.

“I’m so proud right now. We don’t get enough games at home so to play here and have the support of the Christchurch people was really good.

“The thing about when you wear this jumper is that you know whoever comes in that they will do their job.

“It is a special jersey to be able to wear and we have faith in whoever comes in to the squad and we have got a World Cup coming up so there is a lot to look forward to for us.”
