NRL NRL: Marshall set for Dragons return

St George Illawara Dragons will have influential half-back Benji Marshall back for this weekend's NRL clash with North Queensland Cowboys.

  • Published:

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.
