BLAKE Green can not wait to taste his first Wigan-St Helens derby this Friday.

The Aussie stand-off hopes his experiences of playing in Hull derbies have given him a taste of what to expect when Saints roll up at the DW Stadium.

Green, who has made an impressive start to his Warriors career, said: “From the day I signed here fans have come up to me and said, ‘Good luck against St Helens’, it’s obviously a big deal and I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve seen some previous ones on TV and they looked like great occasions.

“I was lucky to play in the Hull derby, the crowds were really good and got right into it, they were physical contests and I’m guessing it’ll be a similar occasion. It’s shaping to be a good one.”
