St George Illawara Dragons will have influential half-back Benji Marshall back for this weekend's NRL clash with North Queensland Cowboys.
Benji Marshall will return to help continue St George Illawarra Dragons' NRL revival this weekend after recovering from a hamstring strain.
The former New Zealand captain – who led the Kiwis to their 2008 World Cup triumph and success in the 2010 Four Nations – has missed the Dragons' last two matches with the injury.
In his absence the Dragons have claimed back-to-back victories after losing their first two matches of the campaign, their latest win a 14-12 triumph over the Penrith Panthers.
Marshall's return at half-back will boost their ranks further as they travel to defending champions North Queensland Cowboys on Saturday, the 31-year-old part of an 18-man squad.
