The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and Blake Green have reached an agreement that will see the five-eighth remain with the Newcastle Knights for the 2021 season, on the back of Kyle Flanagan moving to Belmore for the next three years.
Green signed a one year contract for the 2020 season at Belmore shortly before he suffered a major ACL injury for the Knights in his third game back against the Cowboys last season.
In regard to Green remaining in Newcastle for next season, Bulldogs CEO Andrew Hill was quick to praise the veteran five-eighth:
"When we signed Blake we were really looking forward to the experience and teaching abilities that he could bring to our club for next season and the effect that could have on our young halves.
It was heartbreaking to see Blake suffer an ACL injury when he did and I know how disappointed he was at the timing.
I must really thank Blake for the integrity he has shown during this whole process so that the decision could be made early enough for us to sign Kyle Flanagan.
Everyone at the club sincerely wishes him and his family all the best for the future."
