Born and raised in Hull, Chris Green almost went the length of his career a one-club man, spending eight years as a Hull FC player and registering over 140 appearances for the Airlie Birds – something that will always live long in his memory.
“Playing for my boyhood club was really special and there’s a lot to be said about pulling on that famous black-and-white shirt.
“It’s something I will always be proud of.”
Two of those appearances were at Wembley, as Hull won successive Challenge Cups against Warrington in 2016 and Wigan in 2017. That was a dream come true for the forward.
“The two back-to-back Challenge Cups and breaking the Wembley hoodoo was unbelievable and I never thought I would have a chance to do it.
“No one can ever take those memories away from me or my family.”
Green made a loan move to Wakefield at the back end of 2019 and then joined Trinity permanently ahead of the 2020 season as he hunted game time.
“The end of the season in 2019 didn’t really go how I wanted it to, but I was out of contract with Hull and the games seemed to dry up quickly for me towards the end of that year.
“I needed to keep playing to earn another contract elsewhere, so my agent had contact from Wakefield and we then had a chance to look at each other whilst helping them avoid relegation.”
Despite rumours circulating that the prop had been offered out on loan, he was quick to dismiss any such claims.
“I’m not too sure where that report came from, but I’ve got a two-year contract with Wakefield that runs until the end of 2021.
“And there’s been no movement as we speak; that’s all I can say.”
