Career highlights

Toby Greene is a professional Australian rules football player at the Greater Western Sydney Football Club. He was recruited by the club with pick #11 overall in the 2011 National Draft, and played in the Greater Western Sydney's first season, in 2012. Greene made his debut in Round 1, against Sydney. A prolific ball-winner,[1] he won the Giants' best first year player award in 2012. He was nominated for the AFL Rising Star award but was ineligible to win it due to being found guilty for a bumping offence earlier in the season.[2] He attended Wesley College, Glen Waverley. On 13 May 2014, Greene was charged with a number of offences including assault with a dangerous weapon and intentionally causing serious injury over an alleged assault in a Melbourne licensed venue the previous night.[3]
