A heart-to-heart with master coach Wayne Bennett has delivered Benji Marshall his wish of an NRL lifeline, with the veteran playmaker signing a one-year NRL deal with Brisbane.Marshalls manager Mario Tartak confirmed to AAP on Friday that he had inked the deal which will reunite him with Bennett.Bennetts relationship with Marshall - from coaching him in New Zealands 2008 World Cup win and the NRL All Stars - played a big part in getting the deal over the line.(Bennett) is someone that Benji looks up to, Tartak said. He placed a lot of calls to him during the year. They had a heart-to-heart. They talk a lot, just for advice.?And he just said he wasnt ready to retire.Brisbane are well stocked for halves with Ben Hunt and Anthony Milford at Red Hill, leading some to question why they would sign Marshall.Hunt has been linked to Parramatta however Bennett this week guaranteed the future of both of his star halves.Marshall could be used in the bench utility role, which has been occupied by Kodi Nikorima in recent times, while Bennett said he planned to use the 255-game, 27-Test veteran as a centre or back up to fullback Darius Boyd.Marshall is considered one of the all-time greats, having changed the way the game was played in the mid 00s and encouraging innumerable imitators with his trademark footwork.However its been questioned whether the 2005 Wests Tigers grand final winner is capable of recapturing his best and he faces a steep learning curve to learn a new position so late in his career.Broncos centre Jack Reed was this year forced into retirement though the club has recruited Gold Coasts David Mead as a replacement.Marshall was left without a club after St George Illawarra declined to renew his deal after a disastrous 2016 in which Paul McGregors side finished 11th and were heavily criticised for their boring playing style.He fell out of favour and was dropped for the second last round.

After pitcher Alex Sanabia was placed on the disabled list earlier in the week, Turner was called up from Triple-A New Orleans to take his spot in the rotation. The 22-year-old right-hander responded by tossing seven scoreless innings in his season debut and Marcell Ozuna had three hits to help the Miami Marlins halt a nine-game losing streak with a 5-1 win over the New York Mets on Friday night. "I feel Ive been throwing the ball like this in Triple-A," said Turner, who was drafted ninth overall by Detroit in 2009 and traded to the Marlins last season. "To be honest with you, it was a matter of time of making the adjustments I needed to make and get everything right." Recalled before the game, Turner (1-0) allowed five hits and walked one while striking oy pitches and having bloopers fall in." Daniel Muut three. "Turner did a tremendous job coming up," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "I know he was excited to get the opportunity to go out there and start." Turner was 3-4 with a 4.47 ERA in 10 starts with New Orleans before the promotion. "The last five or six starts, everythings coming together," Turner said. "Obviously, it took a little bit longer than I would have liked but Im happy that it is here now." Pinch-hitter Jordan Brown hit a two-run double, and Ed Lucas and Jeff Mathis each drove home a run in the pivotal seventh as the Marlins won for the third time in 19 games. "A lot of good things out there tonight," Redmond said. After sweeping four Subway Series games from the New York Yankees, the Mets had their longest winning streak of the season snapped at five. Shaun Marcum (0-6) allowed four runs and seven hits in 6 2-3 innings, becoming the first Mets pitcher to open a season with six consecutive losses since Mike Pelfrey went 0-7 in 2007. The right-hander struck out a career-high 12 over seven strong innings in a no-decision Sunday night against Atlanta. "Its just one of those nights where he kept us in the game, gave us a chance, we didnt mount much offence -- but I certainly wasnt disappoointed with the way Shaun pitches, thats for sure," Mets manager Terry Collins said.dddddddddddd Ozuna led off the fifth with a single to extend his hitting streak to 16 games, the longest current run in the majors. He is batting .356 (21 for 59) during the streak. "I feel good because Im enjoying my game," Ozuna said. "The manager and coaches give me confidence and always stress that I remain calm and also have fun." Marcum got out of a bases-loaded jam when Jeff Mathis bounced into a double play, keeping the game scoreless. Derek Dietrich doubled to start the seventh for the Marlins and Ozuna followed with a bloop single. Two batters later, Lucas, making his first major league start, blooped a single of his own for his first career hit after 10 years in the minors. That scored Dietrich for a 1-0 lead. "Its been 10 years. I never stopped hoping," Lucas said. "I finally got an opportunity. Hopefully there will be more to come." Mathis came up with the bases loaded again and this time delivered a sacrifice fly. Brown batted for Turner and hit a two-run double to left-centre, making it 4-0 and ending Marcums night. "Its frustrating," Marcum said. "I think every pitcher will tell you its more frustrating making quality pitches and having bloopers fall in."
