Stand-in skipper and GIANTS superstar Toby Greene has extended his contract with the club until 2026.

The enigmatic forward - who has kicked 19 goals so far in 2021 - has added two years to a six-year deal that he signed in 2018.

The 27-year-old has kicked 202 goals in his 165 matches for the club since being selected at pick 11 in the club’s inaugural draft.

The 2016 All Australian and Kevin Sheedy Medallist has cemented his reputation as one of the best forwards in the game in 2021 - averaging 18.6 touches, 9.1 score involvements and 2.7 goals a game.

GIANTS General Manager of Football Jason McCartney said:

“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.”

Greene said he’s relishing being fit and healthy and had no hesitation in signing on until the age of 33.

“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.

“It’s been a really enjoyable start to the season and I’m looking forward to being back in Sydney in front of our orange army this weekend.”

The GIANTS return home to GIANTS Stadium for the first time since round one this Saturday when they take on Essendon on Saturday at 1:45pm.
