Blake Green (born 18 September 1986) is an Australian professional rugby league fooballer for the Melbourne Storm. A half back and five-eighth, he previously played in the National Rugby League for the Parramatta Eels, Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks and Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs before moving to Super League and playing for Hull Kingston Rovers and then Wigan, with whom he won the Harry Sunderland Trophy as man-of-the-match in the 2013 Super League Grand Final.

Background[edit]

While attending Westfields Sports High School, Green played for the Australian Schoolboys team in 2004.[2]

Playing career[edit]

In October 2010 it was announced that Green had inked a 2 year deal with the East Riding of Yorkshire club Hull Kingston Rovers, starting from the 2011 Super League season. Blake is linking up with former collague Michael Dobson to form a new partnership at half-back for the Robins. Crusaders RL based in Wales currently playing in European Super League were also in the running to sign him as a specialist halfback for 2010's Super League XV.[3][4]

Blake won the Harry Sunderland Trophy in the 2013 Super League Grand Final against the Warrington Wolves on 5 October 2013 as he helped Wigan come from 16-2 down to win 30-16 as he scored the try which moved Wigan 24-16 ahead in a crucial stage of the game as he put on a fantastic display at stand off despite taking a cheap shot on the ground from Warrington's Ben Westwood after just three minutes which left Blake on the ground out cold for a few minutes and with a black eye.

On 10 June 2014, Blake announced he would leave Wigan at the end of the season.,[5][6]
