Wednesday 11 June 2014
Wigan stand-off Blake Green will join 2012 NRL champions Melbourne Storm when he leaves Super League at the end of the season.
The 27-year-old former Canterbury, Parramatta and Cronulla player, who wants to return to Australia for family reasons, has signed a two-year deal with Storm.
Green, who was man of the match in Wigan's Grand Final win over Warrington in October, has made 42 appearances so far after joining the Warriors from Hull KR but is currently sidelined with a ruptured bicep.
Meanwhile, Melbourne have also announced that 27-year-old forward Junior Moors will leave the club at the end of the season to play in Super League, although they have not named his destination.
The Auckland-born Moors has made 11 appearances for Storm since joining them from Wests Tigers last year including their 2013 World Club Challenge victory over Leeds.
The second rower represented Samoa in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.
