Benji Marshall hasn't given up hope of wearing the Kiwi jumper one last time before hanging up his boots.

After establishing himself as arguably the form New Zealander of the NRL during the opening six rounds, the Wests Tigers No.6 is still dreaming of ending his six-year exile from the national set-up.

On form, he is undoubtedly the leading contender to partner Shaun Johnson in the halves for the mid-year Denver Test against England and has consistently out-pointed the other leading contenders.

  ‘His form’s deteriorated’: Michael Ennis takes bizarre shot at Wests Tigers matchwinner Benji Marshall Commentator Michael Ennis says his former Canterbury Bulldogs teammate Josh Reynolds should replace Benji Marshall at five-eighth for the Wests Tigers’ clash against Manly. Marshall’s form in the number six jumper this season has been nothing short of sensational, with the 33-year-old given an opportunity at five-eighth after Reynolds suffered a hamstring injury on the eve of round one.The former Kiwi international has played an instrumental role in the Tigers’ stunning start to 2018, which has seen them win four of their first five games to occupy a spot in the top four against all the odds.

Benji eyes Kiwi league Test recall squib. by The Sydney Morning Herald 90 days ago. Benji Marshall hasn't given up hope of wearing the Kiwi jumper one last time before hanging up his boots.

Benji Marshall's bid to return to Kiwis colours has the endorsement of New Zealand captain Adam Blair. The long-time teammates at club and Test level lock horns this weekend when the Warriors host the Wests Tigers in a third versus fifth NRL clash in Auckland.

Kieran Foran has shown glimpses for new club Canterbury but is yet to hit his straps, Brisbane's Kodi Nikorima appears down on confidence, while Te Maire Martin is toiling off the bench in North Queensland.

Much will depend on who takes over from ex-coach David Kidwell, who had chosen not to reapply for his position after New Zealand's World Cup failure, and whether the new mentor wants immediate success or has an eye on the future.

"I've never made myself not available to represent my country - it's just how passionate I feel about it," Marshall said.

"I'm just enjoying where I am at the moment and, if it happens, it happens. And if it doesn't, it's all good."

A revitalised Benji Marshall is in the frame for Kiwis recall three years after his last Test for New Zealand. The drums are beating for the in-form Marshall's Test career to be revived at the Anzac Test in Brisbane next week.

After leading the Tigers to a 5-1 start to be in fourth, Marshall's case to add to his 25 Test caps and earn his first New Zealand jumper since 2012 is compelling.

A line had seemingly been struck through Marshall's name during the reigns of Kidwell and his predecessor Stephen Kearney.

After a brief and unsuccessful stint in Super Rugby, Marshall was repeatedly knocked back by Kiwi selectors.

The writing was seemingly on the wall in the 2014 Anzac Test when Marshall was overlooked despite an injury crisis resulting in back-rower Tohu Harris filling in at five-eighth.

Asked if he ever felt like he'd been blacklisted, Marshall said: "No. When I talked to them, they made it clear it wasn't personal and that other people were playing better than me.

"That's all you can do is try and be better. I've had a good start to the season but it can turn pretty quick."
