Blake Green signs two-year NRL deal with Melbourne Storm
Posted 1 hour 32 minutes ago

Wigan five-eighth Blake Green will join NRL club Melbourne in November after agreeing to a two-year deal.

The Storm confirmed the signing on Wednesday, a day after the out-of-contract Green announced he was leaving Wigan and returning to Australia at the end of the English Super League season.

The 27-year-old Green, who was man of the match in Wigan's grand final win last October, joined Wigan from Hull KR in 2013 having previously played for NRL clubs Canterbury, Parramatta and Cronulla.

He is currently sidelined with a ruptured bicep.

Green's signing is a boost for the Storm, who have struggled at five-eighth following the departure of Gareth Widdop to rivals St George-Illawarra.

Ben Hampton, Ben Roberts and Joel Romelo have all played in the number six with each finishing injured or suspended.

Skipper Cameron Smith even had a crack in that position in the first-half of Sunday's 32-12 hammering by the Sydney Roosters at AAMI Park but did not look like the answer.

I didn't rate Green too much at Wigan at first; I thought Smith was far the better player. But he improved over the last couple of seasons, coming good in the big games, the GF and Cup final. And Wigan, despite having some talented kids coming through, have missed him recently when he's been injured. I agree with NU, he'll go fine at Melbourne.
