Blanch, a winger, was grabbed from the Wakefield Wildcats at the end of the 2010 campaign, having also previously played for Castleford Tigers and Widnes Vikings. Eager to make an impact with the Dragons, Damien certainly managed that, notching up 20 tries in only 28 games, showing his consistency and devastating finishing ability. Also, he managed to pick up an award for last seasons best try in Super League, which came against Castleford Tigers in the Gilbert Brutus Stadium. On an international level, he was initially called up for Ireland in 2006, and was also in their squad for the 2008 Rugby League World Cup, in which he has a successful tournament in and amongst the try line. He was also named 2009’s Ireland player of the year. Slotting into the coach’s methods of play with ease, it’s hard not to be wary of Blanch’s pace and power.
