Former All Blacks halfback retires

6:39 am on 13 May 2010

The former All Black halfback Justin Marshall has announced his retirement and he could make his final appearance for his English club Saracens in this weekend's premiership semi-final against Northampton.

36 year old Marshall won 81 All Black caps and he's the third most capped New Zealand player, and he's spent the last five years of his career in Europe.

He says he's looking forward to bringing his family home to settle into a normal life, and he'll be doing some TV commentary work when he returns.
