Jon Green (born 16 July 1985, in Southport, Queensland) was an Australian professional rugby league footballer. Green lived in Perth and played junior footy for South Perth Lions in the Western Australia Rugby League competition.[1] He then commenced his professional career playing for the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, St. George Illawarra Dragons, Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks and Brisbane Broncos.

Career[edit]

Green began playing in the National Rugby League in 2006 for the Bulldogs club, playing 6 games for them over the next seasons.

He joined the St. George Illawarra Dragons club in 2007, and was generally assigned to play for St. George Illawarra Dragons's feeder club (the Shellharbour Dragons) as a Prop. He has been afforded the opportunity to play for St. George Illawarra Dragons from time to time, mainly during the representative season.

In August 2010, it was confirmed that Green had his contract extended for a further season to see him stay at St. George Illawarra Dragons until the end of the 2011 season.[citation needed]

Green has signed with the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks for the 2012 NRL season. He was signed to help replace the loss of Luke Douglas and Kade Snowden.
