The Manly Sea Eagles have today granted five-eighth Blake Green an immediate release from the final year of his contract.

Green, 31, was contracted to the Sea Eagles for the 2018 season after joining the Club this year from the Melbourne Storm.

“The Club has been advised that Blake has received an opportunity to continue his NRL career elsewhere over the next few years and in the interest of Blake and his family’s long-term future, has agreed to release him now,’’ Manly CEO Lyall Gorman said.

“We are comfortable with this decision as Blake is off contract at the end of the 2018 season and we are unsure of the likelihood of his contract being extended past that period.

“By granting his request, it enables Blake and his young family the chance to secure their future and at the same time give our Club the opportunity to go into the market to find the right replacement for him.

“We wish Blake and his family all the best and thank him for his valuable contribution to the Club on and off the field during his time with us.”
