Benji Marshall has done it all in a glittering career. But the veteran playmaker is desperate to force his way back onto the international stage.
Stephen Kearney’s Kiwis are defending Four Nations champions but The81stMinute understands Kearney is considering shifting out- of-form Kieran Foran from the number six, giving Marshall his return.
Marshall was mesmerising against Canterbury while Foran’s Manly slumped to another loss against Penrith.
Kearney has always been prepared to make the tough calls which included leaving Jared Waerea-Hargreaves out of the squad in 2014.
Australia now face the prospect of a Kiwi team that boasts an attacking arsenal of Shaun Johnson, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Marshall and Foran.
