Manly Warringah Sea Eagles are pleased to announce the signing of Melbourne Storm five-eighth Blake Green for the next two years.

A quality ball-player, Green has played 91 first grade matches and brings plenty of experience and a strong kicking game to Manly, having enjoyed successful stints in the NRL and the English Super League.

Green won the Harry Sunderland Trophy as man-of-the-match playing for Wigan in the 2013 Super League Grand Final.

Sea Eagles Coach Trent Barrett said the signing of Green was an important one for the Club following the retirement of Jamie Lyon.

“Blake gives us what we need. He will be a really good foil for Daly Cherry-Evans. He will take a lot of pressure off Daly, especially with his kicking game on the left edge,’’ Barrett said.

“He has been in a good system at Melbourne under Craig Bellamy. Blake is a really great signing for us.”
