THEY formed one of the NRL’s most lethal scrumbase combinations and now new Sea Eagles five-eighth Blake Green faces the challenge of winning without his former Melbourne Storm team mate Cooper Cronk.
Statistics reveal that as a starting No. 6 playing alongside Cronk, Green has won 34 out of 47 games.
But when he had another halfback Green has won just once in 24 outings at Parramatta, Cronulla, Canterbury, Melbourne and now the Sea Eagles.
His halfbacks in those games since 2009 have been Tim Smith (2 games), Brett Kimmorley (7), current Sea Eagles coach Trent Barrett (4), Brett Seymour (1), Scott Porter (4), Paul Gallen (1), Ben Barba (1), Ben Hampton (3) and Daly Cherry-Evans (1).
