Biography:

After being spotted playing in Western Australia, Blake moved to Panthers and was part of the club's premiership-winning NYC side in 2013. He stepped up to the Panthers ISP side in 2014 and scored a try in their Grand Final victory. His NRL debut came in 2015 and was soon followed by selection in the NSW City Origin squad. Blake made his international debut for Fiji in 2017 but missed out on the Rugby League World Cup after being sidelined with a shoulder injury. He formed a lethal combination with fellow Fijian international Viliame Kikau on the Panthers left edge in 2018, and finished the season as the club's leading try-scorer, before committing to a new deal with the club until the end of 2023.
