Benji Marshall is hoping he can finish off his glittering rugby league career with a second World Cup triumph for New Zealand, if given the green light to take part in the tournament in the UK later this year.

Benji, who played a starring role in the Kiwis stunning win over Australia in the 2008 World Cup final in Brisbane, is set to leave the Wests Tigers at the end of the NRL season to take up a career in rugby union.

Kei te hiahia a Benji Marshall ki te whakaoti i tona takaro riiki ki tetahi taitara whakahirahira.  Ko te wikitoria i te kapu riiki o te ao mo te wa tuarua tona e whai nei me te whakaritenga o te kapa Kiwi mo te keemu me te haerenga nui ki Ingarangi hei te mutunga o tenei tau.  Rua tekau ma waru ona tau inaianei a ko tona tino keemu mai ona takaro maha ko te rironga o Aotearoa i te kapu o te ao i te tau ruamano ma waru i Poitikape Ahitereria.
