Player Bio

Renowned for his acrobatic diving style when scoring tries, Liam Marshall is an entertainer on the pitch and a recognised try scorer in the first team.

Marshall is a former Wigan Academy player who played for the Reserves side in 2016. He also played for Swinton Lions in the Championship in 2016, scoring 20 tries in 22 appearances.

The winger was handed a professional contract with Wigan ahead of the 2017 season and he had a dream debut campaign, playing 24 times, scoring 23 tries and being named joint Wigan Warriors Young Player of the Year.

Marshall made his first major final appearance in the 2017 Challenge Cup Final against Hull FC at Wembley Stadium.

He signed a new four-year contract in April 2018 after a string of stand-out performances. Overall, in that year, he scored 16 tries in 21 games, but his season was cut short after picking up an ACL injury in August.

He returned to the side in 2019, becoming Wigan’s top try scorer for the season with 17 in 24 games and Marshall had a bright start to 2020, but his season was cut short once again, this time with a knee ligament injury sustained against Castleford in late August. He appeared ten times, scoring six tries.

The Winger returned to action in June 2021 after a 10-month spell on the sidelines recovering from the ACL injury and went on to make 16 appearances, scoring 7 tries.

In 2022, he continued to prove his try scoring reputation as he scored 26 tries in all competitions, including a prolific winning try in the Challenge Cup Final at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium against the Huddersfield Giants to see Wigan lift the trophy.

Marshall made his England debut off the bench in a 50-0 win over Fiji in October 2022 and in October 2022, Marshall also announced that he had signed a new 3-year deal that would see the winger remain at his hometown Club until 2025.

2023 continued to be a strong year for the winger, who appeared 29 times across the year – scoring 24 tries. He was once again the hometown hero, scoring the only try in the 2023 Super League Grand Final that saw Wigan crowned Champions.

Liam Marshall was part of the Warriors team to hold all four trophies at the same time after adding the Betfred World Club Challenge and Challenge Cup to his honours in 2024.
