Other Unions / Teams: All Black shackled?

"He's got a two-year contract and can be linked with whoever he likes -- he's not leaving here!"

Leeds' director of rugby Phil Davies says All Blacks halfback Justin Marshall is staying put, despite reports of a move to Harlequins.

Marshall was yesterday reported to be a target for Harlequins should Leeds be relegated from the English premiership this year.

"He's got a contract here and we won't be going down," Davies was quoted as saying on the BBC website.

"He's got a two-year contract and can be linked with whoever he likes -- he's not leaving here."

Bottom-placed Leeds today had a morale-boosting 25-14 win over fellow strugglers Bath.

It was Leeds' third win of the season and moved them within two points of Bath in the race to avoid relegation.

Harlequins, with former All Black Andrew Mehrtens at first five-eighth, are dominating the English National League One with 14 wins from 14 and are set to return to the top flight next season.

Mehrtens yesterday said he was seeking a South African passport so he can play for Harlequins as a "local" player under English club rules.

Mehrtens, who was born in Durban, would free up room for another import at the club if he was successful in his application.

Reports have also linked All Blacks captain Tana Umaga to a move to Harlequins. Umaga's manager Rob Brady refused to comment yesterday.

I agree. I thought Justin still had lots of play in him and this was a singularly stupid move, except if he was planning to work on a retirement fund.
 
davids,

it has been mentioned he is still looking at france 07
 
Marshall,

He can look as long as he likes but he'll never play for the AB's again - they are well pleased to be rid of him. However, we will hear a lot more from him as he has a bit of a killer streak in him,

Patrick.
