Mary wants Benji at Dragons

St George Ilawarra coach Paul McGregor has defended Benji Marshall, saying critics of the veteran halfback are being too harsh.

Marshall, who has reportedly knocked back a $300,000 contract extension by the Dragons, came under fire from former NRL stars Andrew Johns and Brad Fittler after last weekend’s humiliating shut-out loss to premiers North Queensland.

McGregor says he has no problem with the 31-year-old playmaker however, and the Kiwi international’s struggles have more to do with the team’s poor form than anything else.
