Greater Western Sydney star Toby Greene has extended his already-lengthy contract through to the end of the 2026 AFL season.
Greene was already committed to GWS until the end of 2024 but has added another two seasons to the long-term deal he signed in 2018.
The 27-year-old has excelled this year, particularly as stand-in skipper amid Stephen Coniglio’s injury-enforced absence.
The dynamic forward has booted 19 goals and is averaging 18.6 touches, 9.1 score involvements and 2.7 goals a game.
“I’ve always known my future was at the Giants, it’s been my home since I was 18,” Greene said.
“We’ve got a young and exciting group this season and I’m privileged to lead them out until Cogs (Stephen Coniglio) returns.”
Greene has kicked 202 goals in his 165 matches for the Giants since being selected with pick No.11 in the club’s inaugural draft in 2011.
GWS football boss Jason McCartney lauded the forward’s leadership.
“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.”
GWS are sitting 3-4 but have won three of their past four games before they face Essendon on Saturday.
