Gun hooker Jeremy Marshall-King will be a Dolphin until at least the end of the 2025 NRL season after extending his contract today.
Marshall-King has been one of the shining lights in the Dolphins’ positive start to the year that has netted them three wins in four matches and a spot in the NRL’s top four early in their debut season.
The 27-year-old was arguably the Dolphins’ best player in the team’s first two victories of the year.
That included entrenching himself in history by making the break and throwing the last pass that led to the Dolphins’ first ever try in the round-one win over the Roosters.

After making the leap of faith to move to the Dolphins on the back of winning the Player of the Year award at the Bulldogs last season, Marshall-King is clearly enjoying the change.
“It has been a great move for my family and we have enjoyed ourselves immensely up here,” said Marshall-King.
I am really happy with the ways things are going and the exciting start the club has had to their first season.
“I want to thank the Dolphins’ fans and the local community for how they have welcomed us.
“I am really excited about what is ahead for the future of the Dolphins and I want to be part of it.”
Marshall-King is a current New Zealand Test player who will play his 103rd NRL match when he returns against the Dragons on Saturday.
Dolphins’ chief executive Terry Reader said Marshall-King had shown his value to the club already.
“Jeremy has made an immediate impact at the Dolphins not only on the field, but off the field as well,” said Reader.
“We are so pleased to extend his contract this early in his first year at the club and reward him for the great form he has showed so far.
“It means we have secured a world-class hooker for the next three years and this is a great boost as we continue to build our roster for the future.”
Marshall-King will return for the Dolphins this week to take on the Dragons.
