Rugby league great Brad Fittler has slammed Benji Marshall's appearance in an Auckland Blues video while he is still contracted with the Wests Tigers.

Fittler told SportsFan's Clubhouse that the move was in poor taste, and if he was in Mick Potters's shoes he wouldn't pick Marshall for this week's team.

"If it is a sign of professional sport, it is not the better side of professional sport," Fittler said. "I thought it was in really poor taste.

"He has brought something into our game that wasn't there before, that real flair, and it is so sad that it is all finishing this way.

"A lot of the Tigers fans are quite fed up, and rightly so."

Former Wallabies fullback Matt Burke, also appearing on SportsFan's Clubhouse, expressed surprise that Marshall is yet to be sanctioned over his appearance in the video.

"I would imagine that there would be something in his contract that you are not allowed to promote a rival code," Burke said. "There certainly was in ours.

"We were told not to talk about the other mob because you don't want to give them any advantage."
