Blake Green was told by Warriors management last week that his services were no longer required at the club beyond this season.

The 33-year-old proved once again how valuable he can be on the field Saturday night against the Broncos, leading the Warriors to a massive comeback win. His kicking game was clinical throughout the game and the Auckland based club will definitely be missing out next season.

At his age, Green may only have a few more seasons in him at best but he is keen to carry on after telling NRL.com: “I love footy. I still want to keep playing. Hopefully, I can be of some use to someone”

Whether he stays in the NRL or heads back to Super League, there are many clubs that could use his services. He is a great leader, has good composure and has one of the best kicking games in rugby league.

In the NRL, the underachieving Broncos side definitely need some structure in the halves. Green would partner Brodie Croft well allowing him to run more, while he took charge guiding the team around the park. He would add much needed experience and leadership to this Broncos side who are in shambles and signing with the Broncos would make sense for both parties.

 

Over in Super League, the 2013 Harry Sunderland Trophy winner would create a scary halves partnership with Tuimoala Lolohea for Salford, who have struggled this season after Jackson Hastings departure. Green would control all the kicking and lead the team around the park and Lolohea would finally be able to play his natural game. The Red Devils have a lot of potential and signing Blake Green would add some much needed depth to the team.

No matter where he ends up tho, Green will do his best and will help the team he is at win games. Even though the Warriors have struggled in his three-year tenure there, he has been a true professional that has led the team around the park, a hard thing to do at the club.

He is a true rugby league journeyman, who has played well at every club he has been at. Hopefully he finds a place where he can end his career as a winner.
