Justin Marshall signs for the Saracens

It seems his fight with Montpellier is over and he's been released to sign for the english club. Justin Marshall will be then, if my reckoning isn't wrong, the first kiwi to have played in all four top european competitions: Magners, Top 14, Guinness and Heineken Cup.

Not a bad feat for a player who has consistently been an outstanding performer at his position for over a decade.

But clearly, Marshall's situation at the french club and his change to Saracens does mean something's not going right for him.
What is it?

Maybe 12 years at the highest level are too much.

Maybe... could it be time for Justin Marshall to start thinking about putting an end to his career?

Justin Marshall is finished as a player now. It is another poor decision by Eddie Jones.

Yep. I agree.

It's a real pity though as he was such a brilliant player just ten months ago. But he has had so much success at the journalistic level that, well, rugby is now coming in a poor second to other more fun things. Life has to trundle on.
