A year or two ago Benji Marshal being available would have caused a rush of RL clubs to have come running in for him with their cheque books ope and their pen caps off.
Now after a season of generally poor form he's given notice to jump- the Tigers' ship giving rise to a lot of questions about his future but hardly any answers. So speculation is rife.
Another NRL club? he's said he wouldn't play for another club against the Tigers. There again things change if the right offer were to be forthcoming surely he'd be at least tempted.
It doesn't seem that any other club is rushing to sign him or show their hand if they are.
R Union? Surely not for the sort of freedom he likes to play under.
Super League - only clubs with big money need even think about it, but what a draw it would be, and big publicity.
Often by the time an announcement like this is made there are options on the table for the player.
He and his agent and a club somewhere are either keeping a big move unusually secret or this big name player is taking a huge step in the dark.
