The uncertainty over the future of the rugby league star Benji Marshall has the Kiwis coaches unsure whether he'll be available to play in the World Cup later this year.

Marshall is in the middle of contract negotiations with his NRL club Wests Tigers, but is also being pursued by the Blues Super Rugby franchise in New Zealand.

The Kiwis coach Stephen Kearney hopes Marshall will be available for the tournament but says he's taking a wait-and-see approach.
