Justin Marshall to join English Rugby Club Saracens

11:24 am on 16 January 2009

Former All Blacks halfback Justin Marshall has cut short his stay with French side Montpellier to sign a short-term deal with English Premiership club Saracens.

The 35-year-old was pinpointed by Saracens' former Wallabies coach Eddie Jones after South African Neil de Kock was ruled out for around three months with a broken arm.

Marshall told British media after recent discussions with Montpellier it was mutually agreed the halfback wouldn't renew his one year contract.
