He was just sixteen when he made his VFL debut in round 1, 1974 for St Kilda. After playing eight games with St Kilda in 1980, he joined Hawthorn for the rest of that season and was a key player during a successful decade for the club. He won the VFL Players Association Most Valuable Player award, now known as the Leigh Matthews Trophy, as well as Hawthorn's best and fairest honours in 1984. The following year he earned All-Australian selection. Greene's last game was their 1988 grand final win over Melbourne, his third premiership.
Greene has been involved at a few different clubs over the years, in 1994 at North Melbourne as a runner and in 1996 as a St.Kilda runner.
