The big fella put on a good performance - except when he almost bulldozed Benji over in that third man tackle...I am sure Benji would have thought WTF???

He plays like that all the time. Nothing different but a good, quality Gibbs performance.

Always busts his gut. A good 1st grader who never gives a bad showing.
Wests Tigers colours are Black, White & Orange. Balmain are Black & Orange. Wests Tigers are not Balmain. Please take note Wests Tigers CEO.

Hopefully there is an apology from Tiger Watto. His comments relating to Gibbs were a disgrace. lets see if he mans up... I doubt it

That was not a typical Gibbs performance im sorry he has never played that good in a long time. Yes he always does alot of work but tonight he did alot of work and also had a bit of impact some real strong runs. Was best on ground when he was on.

Best game from Gibbs all season. Given how he played the previous two weeks he needed to step up or the Sharks may have had second thoughts.

I've been a critic of Gibbs over the past seasons because I don't believe he plays the conventional role of a front rower in that he is not our main "go to" man when we need metres, but his work rate in defence makes up for this and is an aspect that will be missed at a club who is screaming out for good one-on-one defenders.

I'm having second thoughts about whether the Tigers should have kept him and I'm starting to think we should have.
With Wests in the finals, ANYTHING'S POSSIBLE

His best years are in front of him. The best one on one defensive prop in the game.

Gibbs goes missing when the metres are required. I think his more of a defensive back-rower then front rower, but hasnt got the speed in attack. I would of liked him to stay but only as a back rower and we have enough of them. We need metre eaters in the front row

and he shouldn't be the only one we rely on. He's also the only one who consistanty makes over 100m almost every game.
