    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).

            Should we cut DCE and get Tim Smith?

              Pretty damming statistics. Sounds like twenty and fulton didn't do their homework on Green before they signed him.

              Green is the new Williame He has a loser curse unless Cronk is playing alongside him

                Any 5/8 that plays with that lineup at 7 wouldn't win many a game. Seriously, how is Gallen a halfback haha!

                Guys, Green played Halfback and Gallen 5/8

                Plus this totally discounts his Super League career

                  This issue was raised as a concern by fans before we even signed him.

                  He has literally played one game for us. Can we give the guy a chance before we announce his failure? Crazy idea, I know....

                    You can read into that what you want.

                    If you were to ask if he was a good buy back in that time when he was playing alongside those guys the answer was probably no but like a lot of us when we are starting out in our trade we have a lot to learn.

                    I think he showed in his time in Super League and with the Storm he has developed into a more than competent player.

                    He is not meant to be the superstar that is not his role. Personally I thought he had a solid game last week. It is hard to judge the guy on one performance when we had very little ball or field position.

                      So this stat tells us Melbourne was the most successful team in Australia that he played for.

                      Ahhh yep. Fair to say that this isn't a surprise.

                      His UK win percentage was 59.09%. But let's not let some facts get in the way...

                      People always see what they want....

                      I'll judge the man on his performances in the Maroon and White.
