31 year old Brisbane Broncos recruit Benji Marshall (pictured) is hopeful of making his debut for his new club at the Auckland Nines in a months time.

Although the club is yet to name its squad for the tournament, Marshall has set his sights on the short form weekend as the moment for him to begin the next chapter in his celebrated career.

A premiership player with the Tigers in 2005, Marshall says being a member of the Broncos multicultural squad has been a real thrill after  255 games in the NRL.
