He’s been starring as the stand-in skipper, and now GWS star Toby Greene has committed to the club the rest of his career.
Greene has extended his contract with the Giants until 2026, adding two more years to a six-year deal that he signed in 2018.
The 27-year-old, a foundation GWS player who was taken at pick 11 in the club’s inaugural draft, is now set to be a Giant for life.
An All-Australian and club best and fairest, Greene said the club was his home.
“I’ve always known my future was at the Giants, it’s been my home since I was 18,” he said.
“We’ve got a young and exciting group this season, and I’m privileged to lead them out until Cogs (Stephen Coniglio) returns.”
Giants general manager of football Jason McCartney said Greene had grown after taking the captaincy from injured skipper Stephen Coniglio.
“Toby’s obviously a star of the competition and is having a brilliant start to the season,” McCartney said.
“He’s flourished with the added responsibility this season which is really pleasing.
“It was a pretty easy option for us to add another couple of years to his contract, we’ve always known he’ll be a Giant for life.”
