Green gives new teammates heads-up for Storm clash

EX-MELBOURNE five-eighth Blake Green has been giving his new Manly teammates some inside information on how to beat the Storm ahead of Saturday's clash at Lottoland.

Green goes up against his old club for the first time since leaving for the Sea Eagles after last year's grand final.

The former Wigan playmaker said he spoke to the Manly boys about what to expect on Saturday.

"I had a chat yesterday actually to a few of the members of our team after training, just to give them a heads up on what's coming," Green said.

"I've got a fair idea of how they're going to play, especially on the back of a loss, they'll be quite determined to carry the ball strong, complete their sets and kick well."

Green said while he might know what was coming from the Storm, it would be difficult to deal with.

"I think everyone in the competition is well aware of what they're going to do and how they're going to play, but being able to stop it is a different thing," Green said.

"They've obviously got some really classy players in there, the 'big three' as everyone refers to.

"Along with Jesse Bromwich, they're a pretty handy outfit. It's going to be a tough job for us."

Green also said he was shocked by former halves partner Cooper Cronk's decision to announce his intention to leave Melbourne at the end of the year and move to Sydney.

"I'm not sure what he's got planned,"he said.

"He could do anything. I don't think anyone knows what he's going to do. I don't know if he's made his mind up on anything."
