His 2 year contract means nothing. Just ask SBW.

Seems a good kid. If he does it the right way then why not. He may go and come like SBW.

'Money' Marsters eyes trip to Denver - and the All Blacks
By Christian Nicolussi19 April 2018 — 8:23pm

Esan Marsters knocked back interest from Cronulla and premiers Melbourne to re-commit to the Wests Tigers – now the youngster hopes to sneak into the New Zealand team for the Denver Test. And the youngster who has been nicknamed ''Money Marsters'' by a few of his cheeky Tigers teammates told Fairfax Media his long-term dream was to represent the All Blacks, even though he's never played rugby at the elite level.

Marsters has been ultra-impressive for the Tigers at right centre and this week was rewarded with a two-year extension, which will keep him at the joint venture until the end of 2020. The 21-year-old will look to continue his blistering form against Newcastle on Saturday in Tamworth, the NSW country town he thought was ''somewhere near the Central Coast''.
Marsters popped up on the radar of the Storm who wanted a back-up plan for Felise Kaufusi if he exited the club at the end of the season, while the Sharks were tempted again after they expressed interest the first time around.

New Zealand officials will also keep an eye on Marsters as they look to pick a team for the mid-year Test against England in the US. Brad Takairangi was the right centre in the World Cup, but been in and out of a struggling Parramatta team.
"I definitely want to make that side – I want to keep playing good footy and I might be a chance,'' Marsters said on Thursday. "If the Tigers keep winning, it only improves my chances." Kiwi and Tigers teammate Elijah Taylor said Marsters and Benji Marshall deserved to be considered for the US Test. "Their combination has been very dangerous [on the right], Esan has good feet, a great offload, he's fast and really strong,'' Taylor said. "Even Benji, with the way he's been playing, deserves to put on the black jumper again."

Marsters said the childhood dream growing up in Auckland was to play for the All Blacks, and he was fair dinkum about eventually making the switch. "I never played rugby at the elite level, but I really want to test it out, and hopefully I get a shot over there and see what happens. I'll go with the flow,'' Marsters said. "As a kid I always watched the All Blacks, and when you see how they travel and win a lot, you want to be a part of that legacy. "I definitely want to make the move later in my career, but once I'm established in the NRL. "It was an easy choice to stay at the Tigers. I'm getting to play my own footy, and Ivan [Cleary] has told me to play my own footy, work hard on defence, run hard, be a tough player and everything else will fall into place."

Marsters is averaging more than 130 metres a game and forever busting tackles and making offloads. He is also capable of playing in the back row, hence Melbourne's interest, but prefers the centres. Meanwhile, Taylor confirmed his dodgy hamstring survived a final hit-out on Thursday and he would definitely return against the Knights on Saturday. Taylor broke down in the round-two win against Melbourne and watched his teammates go on to win three of their next four matches.

Isn't it every kiwi kids dream to play for the All Blacks...?

What is more pleasing is that...... Marsters had offers from Melbourne and Cronulla and has chosen to stay at Wests Tigers under Cleary.......

Suli was signed prior to Cleary's arrival.....Justin had a big signing thingo and everything....I doubt the amount of coin offered would have been the same for Suli had Cleary been here..

Marsters on the other hand has been rewarded by hard work ...

Marsters is good but the All Blacks backline probably has the best footy players amongst both codes. Stay with the Tigers Esan ;)

Totally understand the prestige that playing for the All Blacks would bring for a Kiwi youngster. But in reality they are that far ahead of every other Test rugby side it would be like being a team of 18 year olds beating up on a team of under-8's every week, surely the satisfaction levels would be ho-hum? Would've thought playing in a competition where it is a more even playing field would keep the motivation and interest levels flowing.

"I never played rugby at the elite level"

I like Marsters and you've got to have a dream but he's up against it.
