Toby played in the Greater Western Sydney's first season in 2012 debuting in round one against Sydney. A prolific ball-winner, he won the Giants' best first year player award in 2012 and was the runner-up in the Kevin Sheedy Medal as the club's best and fairest. He was nominated for the AFL Rising Star in 2012 award but was ineligible to win it due to being found guilty for a bumping offence earlier in the season.
2017 saw Greene win the Greater Western Sydney Football Club leading Goalkicker Award with 45 goals for the season. He came equal first with fellow team-members Jonathan Patton and Jeremy Cameron.
On 17 September 2019, Greene had his one-match suspension upheld by the AFL Tribunal for making contact with the eyes of Lachie Neale, making Greene unavailable for Greater Western Sydney's Preliminary Final match against Collingwood.
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. He faced court on 9 December 2014 on a charge of unlawful assault and was fined $2500 and escaped conviction.
