Rugby league star Benji Marshall has today announced he will be moving back to New Zealand to play rugby for the Blues.

Marshall has signed a two-year deal to play for the Blues franchise in the Super Rugby competition for 2014/15 seasons.

It is understood that the former Kiwi captains will not take part in the Rugby League World Cup in November and will be crossing the ditch within weeks.

It remains unclear what position he will play but the 28-year old said he was excited by the prospect of playing rugby under the tutelage of Sir John Kirwan and his coaching team.
