For our latest HeritageCast we are delighted to be joined by former Robin James Green.
James Green signed for Hull KR at the age of 17 and developed within the academy for 5 years before making his Super League debut against Bradford Bulls at Odsal in 2012. Before his Super League debut, James spent time on dual registration in 2012 with Workington Town making a handful of appearances gaining valuable first-team experience.
Green’s debut was an interesting affair, as he was placed on report and received retrospective punishment leading to a suspension.
A few more dual registration moves followed including stints with Batley Bulldogs and Gateshead Thunder during the 2012 and 2013 seasons. 2014 would be James’ breakout year at Hull KR and he would feature in almost every game for The Robins. He was voted as the Young Player of The Year, just before his 24th birthday. 2015 was another good year for James as he helped guide the club to a first Challenge Cup Final since 1986, but unfortunately, he wouldn’t get to run out at Wembley after Head Coach Chris Chester named him as 18th man.
2016 would be James’ final season at Rovers after signing a 2 year deal with newly promoted Leigh Centurions. Spells with Leigh, Castleford, Bradford Bulls and York City Knights have followed with James’ recently announced his retirement from the game aged just 30 years old, however, he has eyes firmly on his career after playing Rugby League with him recently launching his own company Green & Green, which specialises in Mortgages and Insurance.
