Friday Funnies - Justin Marshall's premature exit

Friday Funnies - Justin Marshall's premature exit

Justin Marshall is a man who's had quite a varied career. He was a Crusaders legend before moving over to the UK and spending time with Leeds in England, and currently, the Ospreys in Wales.

He's captained the All Blacks and achieved 81 Test Caps for them. He's been around the block and had his fair share of high and lowlights. He's also always been a character of the game, and will always been well respected both on and off the pitch.

One of his funniest moments came back in the year 2000, when the Brumbies faced the Crusaders at Jade Stadium in Christchurch.

The Brumbies were in the lead, and looking to take the win with time running out, so the All Black scrum half was obviously a little frustrated.

Referee Andre Watson blows the whistle, to which Marshall clearly says something, prompting Watson to call him over. At this point Marshall presumes he's getting his marching orders, so turns around and starts walking off in a huff, making it halfway to the tunnel before realising it was only going to be a talking to and a warning.

A funny moment that I'm sure won't be in Marshall's personal archive of career highlights.

I think that this was a clasic moment in Rugby and a very funny one if i might add. I was going for the Brumbies during that game and i thought that Justin might have been red carded. Shame about the Brumbies season this year, GO THE TAHS!!! I think that Justin is a great scrum half but maybe with a bit to much attitude and cheek.

Its great watching the competition with him and Phillips, but he loosing it now.I remember Marshall destroying Phillips when The ospreyes played Cardiff, now Marshall is second choice really. Shame it wont last much longer, one more season for him im guessing.
