Who is Greg Harding?

Greg Harding is an Australian rules footballer. He played for both the Fremantle Football Club and the West Coast Eagles. He was drafted by Fremantle from Claremont in the WAFL as a zone selection in the 1995 AFL Draft and played mainly as a defender.

He made his AFL debut in the opening round Western Derby in 1996. In Round 4 of that year, he was awarded the weekly nomination for the AFL Rising Star award. In 1997 he had his best season for Fremantle, playing in 18 games and coming 5th in the club's best and fairest award.

Injuries and poor form hampered his career after 1997, and he played only a further 33 games in the next three seasons for Fremantle before being traded to the West Coast Eagles in return for Daniel Metropolis and a draft selection that would be used to draft Dion Woods.

His career at West Coast was brief, with only 9 games in 2001 before he again succumbed to injury. In total he has undergone 12 operations during his time in the AFL. After being delisted by West Coast at the end of the 2002 season, Harding continued to play for Claremont, being appointed their vice-captain in 2003 and 2004 and winning their best and fairest award in 2003.
