After debuting for the Reds in 2005, coming off the bench against the Blues in Auckland, 2006 year was the making of Greg, who played in all 13 Super 14 matches.
Despite a shoulder aggravation, Greg soldiered on through the season and his solid performance won him selection in the Wallabies squad where he cemented himself as the top loosehead prop in the country before a neck injury ruled him out of the Spring Tour.
He was building up to another big year in 2007 when a shoulder reconstruction put paid to his Investec Super 14 season after just three games and left him in a race against time to be fit for the Rugby World Cup.
He won selection for France but had limited opportunity to impress, coming off the bench against Fiji and starting the final pool match against Canada.
An operation to remove a loose bone fragment in his knee in 2008 restricted him to just eight Investec Super 14 matches and affected his chances of representative selection that year.
He was dogged by injury again in 2009.
Greg showed his versatility in 2010 by playing at both loosehead and tighthead prop at various times. He also made his 50th appearance in Super Rugby and for the Reds
Greg made 15 appearances in 2011 at either loosehead or tighthead prop during the St.George Queensland Reds Super Rugby success.
