John Marshall played 16 times as an opening batsman for Oxford University in 1951 and 1953, winning his Blue in his last year. But it was as a rugby player he really made his mark, playing five times for Scotland as fullback in 1953-54 although he did not win a Blue in that sport. In 1953 he was a regular in the side, scoring his only first-class hundred against Free Foresters at The Parks. In March 1953 he was called into the Scottish side as a new cap to play at Twickenham but had to withdraw, his Test debut finally coming the following season against France in January 1954 by which time he was playing regularly for London Scottish. After graduating in 1953 he became a schoolmaster and taught at the Dragon School, Oxford, before returning to Rugby in 1959, later becoming a housemaster there.
