Green going back to his roots

Storm five-eighth Blake Green says he is looking forward to returning to his hometown when he plays against his old side on Sunday afternoon.

Green, a former Eel and a Western Sydney junior, has fond memories of the ground where he spent much of his time during the early days of his footballing life.         

"I've got a lot of good memories of the place," Green said on Wednesday afternoon.

"I'm Parramatta junior so I did a lot of my training as a kid there. It was one of my favourite grounds to play at so I'm looking  forward to getting back there.

Storm take on reigning premiers South Sydney at AAMI Park, Saturday 16 May from 7:30pm. Get your tickets.

"I will have plenty of family and friends there so it will be great."

Green has enjoyed a strong start to life at Storm, quickly integrating into the side's attack alongside halfback Cooper Cronk. The 28-year old recognises the threat Brad Arthur's side poses, particularly at Pirtek Stadium.

"They're very athletic and very powerful, they play really well at home.

"Momentum is going to be a big thing for us and trying to control some of there big guys.

"When they hit the button they are very good."
