So it looks like he's looking at Super League.
I'm pretty certain we won't be on his list but would you take him at 35?

Certainly a Gifted player on his day. We've done well with older stars with Price, Leuluai, Norton even Brough depending on your view.

Gigot no, too much of an hot head for me and ordinary at best else he’d already have a gig in SL. Marshall would be good , probably wants a decent wedge beyond Wakefield’s salary cap, but if he can produce like he can then a gamble for those clubs that can afford to cut their losses. But if he does come cheap and matches Broughies salary, who may be retiring reading the papers, then who knows. A SL coach once told me that good half’s are like rocking horse sheite, so if Brough does go I don’t think there’s many options out there, again all depends on wages.

Would any club actually be satisfied by this? Come the 2021 season he would be 36

Big name and nobody can knock what he's produced in the past but I think Cas have got it right, 4 players who could comfortably play Halfback with their average age being 25.

No doubt about it Marshall has been " a good un" and had a decent career, but suppose you're a twenty/twenty one year old promising half back at a SL club and they sign him on three times the money you're on. Doesn't do much for your confidence and career does it.
Not that we have the money anyway, but if we had, I would hope MC would not be in the race to sign him.

If we extend Brough’s contract and sign Marshall we would definitely have the oldest half back pairing.

Although I didn't have anyone particular in mind, yes Max could come into that category of player.

I was just putting myself in the position of a young player (I wish :lol: ) and how I might feel if I'd worked hard to try and establish myself only to find a 35/36 year old coming in and 'jumping the queue' and getting more money than me for doing it.
