Murray Marshall was a rugby union international who represented England from 1873 to 1878.
Murray Marshall was born 7 October 1852 in Guildford and baptised on 3 November 1852 in the parish of Street Peter and Street Paul, Godalming.
He also captained his country. He had two older brothers, George and Bryant, and six younger siblings, Milicent, Lionel Hasler, Oswald Percival, Constance Emily, Octavia and Walter Douglas. Marshall made his international debut on 3 March 1873 at Hamilton Crescent, Glasgow in the Scotland vs England match.
Of the 10 matches he played for his national side he was on the winning side on 6 occasions.
He played his final match for England on 11 March 1878 at Lansdowne Road in the Ireland vs England match. In an era where international matches were few and far between, Marshall played in ten consecutive international matches, a record that stood for 36 years.
He was described in 1892 as "in every respect one of the best forwards England ever turned out. Possessed of great height and strength, he was invaluable in a scrummage, used his feet well when the ball got loose, and was a very clever tackle.".
