Luke Marshall: Is the Ulster and Ireland centre about to learn the All Blacks’ Haka?


Ulster’s in-form centre Luke Marshall doesn’t fancy his chances of making a late bolt into Joe Schmidt’s Ireland squad for the 2019 Rugby World Cup and jokes he has ‘more chance of playing for New Zealand’.

The 28-year-old has impressed since his return from almost a year out with an ACL injury, playing a key role in the last four games to help secure Ulster’s place in the Pro14 semi-final away to Glasgow on Friday.

However he does not believe it will be enough to attract the attention of the national coaches, who will select a 31-man squad in September to take to the World Cup in Japan.
