Star forward Toby Greene has capped off a standout season with inclusion in the Therabody All Australian team.

Greene was named in the forward pocket and adds the accolade to his selection in the 2016 All Australian team.

Despite playing just 17 games in 2021, Greene thoroughly deserved his inclusion alongside Harry McKay and Tom Papley on the full forward line.

In the absence of Stephen Coniglio for much of the season, Greene has stood up as stand-in captain. He’s kicked 42 goals through 17 games at a career-high average of 2.5 goals a game.

Greene’s ability to take contested marks as well as winning the ball on the ground has seen him prove to be a tough match up for the opposition while the 27-year old has also averaged more score involvements per game than any other player in 2021.

Coach Leon Cameron has praised Greene for another outstanding season.

“Toby has become one of the most respected players in the competition and thoroughly deserves his spot in this All Australian side,” said Cameron.

“As our on-field leader on a number of occasions, he’s stood up throughout the season and has showed a willingness to play whatever role is required for the team.

“Our players love playing alongside him, our members love watching him and we can’t wait to see him continue to grow as a player and a leader in the years to come.”

While Jacob Hopper’s consistent season in the midfield was recognised with inclusion in the 40-man squad, the 24-year old was overlooked for inclusion in the final team.

Greene becomes just the third player behind Heath Shaw and Jeremy Cameron to be bestowed with the honour twice as a GIANT.

It’s the seventh season in a row that at least one GIANT has been named in the team of the year.

The GIANTS play the Swans in an Elimination Final this Saturday at 3.20pm in Launceston.
