Benji Marshall to captain Kiwis side against England

6:22 pm on 7 November 2008

Standoff Benji Marshall will captain the New Zealand rugby league side in their final Rugby League World Cup pool match against England in Australia tomorrow night.

With tournament skipper Nathan Cayless being rested, Marshall gets the opportunity to lead the side in what will be just the seventh international of his career.

He'll be the side's fourth captain since long-serving leader Ruben Wiki retired from international football in 2006.
