North Queensland Cowboys coach Paul Green has revealed he enquired about bringing high-profile free agent Benji Marshall to the Townsville club, but believes the New Zealand international will join one of the NRL’s Sydney teams.
“When a good player like that comes on the market, we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t ask the question,” Green said.
“I haven’t spoken to him but I would say he would be more keen to stay in Sydney. We enquired and that is as far as it has gone. There is a hell of a lot of stuff that would have to happen for it to come off. But Benji Marshall is a great player.
“He has played Tests for New Zealand, won a World Cup, won a premiership, he has some great skills. Whatever club he goes for he will add something.”
