Benji Marshall is set to return to rugby league this season after an unsuccessful stint with the Blues.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Marshall, who has been given just 212 minutes of game time in eight Super Rugby matches this season, had been prepared to bide his time in the new code but negotiations are now underway to finalise the terms of a release that needs to be sanctioned by the board of New Zealand Rugby Union.

Marshall, 29, has instructed his manager Martin Tauber to open talks with NRL clubs.
