Biography

Blake Green (born 18 September 1986) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer who currently plays for the Manly Sea Eagles in the National Rugby League. 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

Playing junior rugby league for Cabramatta Two Blues & Hills District Bulls. Blake was attending Westfields Sports High School, and played for the Australian Schoolboys team in 2004.

Playing career

Green made his professional rugby league debut during the 2007 NRL season with the Parramatta Eels before being snapped up by the Cronulla Sharks on a two-year deal. He moved to the Canterbury Bulldogs in 2010, enjoying his most consistent season to that point playing 18 games in the halves.

In October 2010 it was announced that Green had inked a two-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 colleague 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.

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 and fractured eye socket.

On 10 June 2014, Blake announced he would leave Wigan at the end of the season. Since returning to the NRL he has been in career-best form with the Melbourne Storm.
