West Tigers legend Benji Marshall negotiates move to North Queensland Cowboys:...

He broke their hearts in the 2005 NRL final, with what is arguably the most memorable game in a decision-maker of all time, now Benji Marshall could be a cowboy in 2021.

And the man driving the possible move is none other than his great finalist Todd Payten, the newly appointed North Queensland coach.

Jake Clifford’s likely departure to Newcastle has opened a spot on the Cowboys’ depth map, and Marshall has been touted as the man to join Michael Morgan and Scott Drinkwater on the roster.

Payten is hoping to land Marshall on a $ 150,000 one-year deal as the 324-game Tigers legend weighs his NRL future according to The Courier Mail.

Clifford is still under contract with the Cowboys until the end of next year, but the Knights have shown an interest and the Cowboys will not get in his way after allowing him to submit offers from other clubs before Payten arrives.

The new Cowboys trainer apparently spoke to Clifford about staying and studying from Marshall, but the 22-year-old is apparently keen on a change of scene.

The unwanted Tigers veteran is hoping to move to Townsville, although he has yet to clarify how he will do his media duties at Fox Sports Sydney, which could be dubious if moving.

The Cowboys are confident they will get a 12 month deal with Marshall within the week.

Marshall was the man who scored the knockout blow for the Wests Tigers in their fairytale Premiership win in 2005 and came up with an intriguing flick-pass that inspired his team’s 30:16 loss to the Cowboys.

The playmaker will now most likely join the team he has pursued for years to win the once proud club after three consecutive bottom four finishes.
