‘Don’t need those thoughts’: Benji Marshall refuses to talk retirement ahead of grand final


Benji Marshall has refused to make a decision on his playing future as he puts preparations for this weekend’s grand final ahead of any announcement on whether he will play on in 2022.

The 36-year-old has been an unsung hero for the Rabbitohs and coach Wayne Bennett this year but only has one thing on his mind right now.

“You don’t want to say ‘this is going to be my last game ever’ because then what you do is you start to feel like ‘this is my last game ever, I better put more into it, or I better try and do more than I usually do’,” Marshall told SENZ Breakfast.

“But with our team we’re really focused on process driven stuff this week and I don’t need to be more than I need to do.

“So I don’t need those thoughts in my head going into the game.”
