Benji Marshall is giving nothing away over his NRL future before South Sydney Rabbitohs' preliminary final against Manly Sea Eagles tonight.

At 36-years old, Marshall is yet to make a call on whether he will play on into the 2022 season, which would be his 20th season as a professional.

Marshall signed for the Rabbitohs on a one-year deal at the start of this year and will be off-contract at the end of this season.

Marshall says it's not hard to push any thought of retirement to the back of his mind.

He says it would mean a lot for him to win the NRL, but if they don't get through this week, there is no point looking at that.

Marshall's future with the Rabbitohs is uncertain, with South Sydney losing their playmaker Adam Reynolds but signed Anthony Milford for 2022.

The Rabbitohs will play the Sea Eagles at 9.50 tonight and the Panther will meet the Storm at 6pm tomorrow.
