Justin Marshall

Already New Zealand’s most-capped back, Justin Marshall starts the 2005 Test season set to pass Ian Jones for second place on the all-time list. Marshall was an undefeated five-time captain in 1997 and has scored more Test tries than any other All Blacks halfback. He was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2005 and, following the DHL NZ Lions Series, will leave to play for Leeds in the UK. Like a good wine, Marshall just seems to get better with age. His 24 Test tries are a record for New Zealand, more than doubling the next best, the 10 scored by 'Super' Sid Going. After kicking off his representative career with Southland, Marshall was lured north to Christchurch by Canterbury coach Vance Stewart where he first cracked the All Blacks on the 1995 tour of Italy and France. He is a huge influence both on and off the field and will play a key leadership role in 2005.
