Newcastle Knights have signed half-back Blake Green from New Zealand Warriors for the rest of the 2020 season.

The 33-year-old, who has made 257 first-grade appearances across the NRL and Super League, links up with the Knights immediately.

Knights coach Adam O’Brien said: “I’ve previously worked with Blake, know the family well and he’s only going to compliment us.

“Further to that. I know he and Mitchell Pearce will complement each other. They share a lot of similar traits. They are educators and fiercely competitive.

“I have a responsibility to the players who are working their backsides off to keep fighting every day and give ourselves the best chance to win.

“We also have a responsibility to our supporters, sponsors and town to compete each week and strive for success.

“Blake’s arrival helps us continue our fight and it’s something he’s excited to be part of.”
