Fan favourite Bryce Gibbs is set to make a shock rugby league comeback!
Rugby League Week’s The Mole reports the 31-year-old front-rower is set to lace up the boots for Wests in Wollongong.
Former NRL star Brett Kimmorley is the coach at Wests and he’s persuaded the big fella to have another run.
It’s understood Bryce has spent the last year working in the mines at Mount Isa and “will combine his footy with shifts as a miner in the Illawarra region.”
Last year, Gibbs attracted interest from the Sea Eagles and Cowboys.
In 2014, Bryce Gibbs decided to hang up his boots after 12-years and 197 games for the Wests Tigers and Cronulla Sharks.
He made his debut in 2003 for the Wests Tigers and who could forget the try he scored in the 2005 Grand Final victory over the Cowboys! He finished his career at Cronulla.
“I’ve decided to hit the eject button on my NRL career! I’ve had a great 12 years, like to thank all the boys I’ve played with and Sheensy [coach Tim Sheens] for giving me a go when I was 18,” said Gibbs, at the time.” …. :deadhorse:
