FORMER Melbourne captain Brad Green showed he still knows how to kick a goal or two grabbing a bag of five in his marquee appearance for NTFA division 1 club Hillwood against George Town yesterday.

A  forward coach at Carlton since his retirement from the AFL in 2012, the 33-year-old Green played for his father Rod's old club and where he has been president for the past ten years.

Green got down and dirty in the Hillwood mud but ended the day as one of the Sharks best players in a big 127-point victory over his old team George Town.

Yesterday's game was Green's third appearance in his home state where he started his football career with the Saints and North Launceston.

He played with former Launceston Church Grammar schoolmates in a game for University in Hobart last season followed by an appearance for Old Launcestonians in NTFA division 2 earlier this season.
