I was unwanted at Wests Tigers: Marshall

first_imgMarshall starred in his first game back for the Tigers in Saturday’s upset win over the Sydney Roosters, his first game for the club since leaving for Super Rugby club the Auckland Blues at the end of 2013.It was originally understood Marshall’s departure came about following a contract dispute over a potential extension at the club, but the playmaker revealed on Sunday he was left unwanted by the Tigers’ previous administration.”At the time Mick Potter was the coach and the club said to me that I wasn’t going to be in the plans for the future,” Marshall told Triple M NRL.”It’s hard for me to be somewhere where I don’t feel wanted and I just wasn’t feeling that.”Obviously at the time I didn’t want to go to another NRL club because my heart was with the Tigers so that’s why I ended up going to rugby union.”Marshall is one of just four players to have played more than 200 games for the merged club, and is still the most famous player to have turned out for franchise.His latest signature already looks likely to pay off, with regular five-eighth Josh Reynolds expected to be out for up to a month with a hamstring injury.Regardless, Marshall said Potter’s decision had worked in his favour as it had since prolonged his career.”It’s not something I regret because if I didn’t leave I probably would have retired a lot earlier from getting too comfortable there and a bit complacent and just feeling a bit lost the last couple of years there,” he said.”I was able to find a bit of myself again, the reasons why I play footy, enjoying the game.”When something gets taken away from you and it gets given back you appreciate it a bit more.”last_img read more

Dele double ends Chelsea’s run

first_imgThe midfielder nodded home two crosses from Christian Eriksen – both at the back post – to stop the Blues winning for a top-flight record 14th consecutive game.The league leaders went close through Eden Hazard in the first half and Diego Costa in the second, but Spurs have cut Chelsea’s lead at the top to five points and opened up the title race. Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino decided to match Chelsea like-for-like with wing-backs, and Kyle Walker and Danny Rose won the battle against Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso, who have been so instrumental to Antonio Conte’s successful system.Hazard should have fired the Blues in front after just five minutes when he beat the offside trap and was played through one-on-one with Hugo Lloris, but he shot wide of the far post.Walker and Rose were menacing on either flank and Pedro was lucky to escape with just a yellow card when he came in late on the Spurs left-back, stirring back up some resentment from the ‘Battle of the Bridge’ last season.Pedro and Costa then exchanged heated words after Costa failed to play the forward into a shooting position, as Chelsea grew frustrated at being unable to threaten the Tottenham’s goal.And Spurs had a deserved breakthrough on the stroke of the interval when Walker played in Eriksen to cross for Alli to nod home for the fourth consecutive game.Chelsea came firing out of the traps in the second half and could have equalised through either Costa, who forced Lloris to tip wide from long range, or Hazard, who missed a close-range header at the far post.But Alli made no mistake and doubled Spurs’ lead on 54 minutes when Eriksen picked out another well-timee run into the box, and he headed beyond Thibaut Courtois into the far corner – his third brace in as many matches. Chelsea looked forlorn and bewildered, as Pedro found space but headed an Alonso cross feebly at Lloris, and Conte threw on Willian, Cesc Fabregas and Michy Batshuayi.But Tottenham held on for a memorable, fifth straight win to move third in the Premier League and just two points behind second-place Liverpool.Tottenham: Lloris (7), Dier (7), Alderweireld (7), Vertonghen (7); Walker (8), Wanyama (7), Dembele (7), Rose (8), Alli (9), Eriksen (8), Kane (7)Subs used: Winks (6), Sissoko (5), Son (5)Chelsea: Courtois (6), Cahill (6), Luiz (7), Azpilicueta (6); Moses (6), Kante (7), Matic (6), Alonso (6); Pedro (7), Costa (6), Hazard (7)Subs used: Willian (5), Fabregas (5), Batshuayi (6)Man of the match: Dele Allilast_img read more
