Benji Marshall: Not interested in a move to England
Benji Marshall's agent insists the Auckland Blues man is not about to play in Super League after being linked with a move to Salford Red Devils.
Red Devils owner Marwan Koukash was believed to want the former Wests Tigers man at the AJ Bell Stadium after struggling to make an early impact in Super Rugby.
Marshall signed a two-year deal with Blues and while he is expected to move at least once more during his career, Japan or the south of France are preferable destinations to England.
However, that does not rule out playing in French Super League club Catalan Dragons unless he remains in union and fancies Top 14 club Perpignan.
"I have no idea about this so-called interest in Benji going to play league in England," Tauber told Total Rugby League.
"The last place that Benji would be looking at playing or thinking of trying out would be England.
"I had dinner with Benji and his wife last week and they are very happy - they've moved into a new place and are loving being in New Zealand.
"Down the track - and I'm talking well down the track - if Benji was to move I'd explore the south of France or Japan to extend his career.
"Not England, not for a minute."
