Heath Gibbs snapped up by Tigers



  • Boom Knights utility Heath Gibbs bagged a hat trick against the Tigers in the NRL’s under 20 competition last month - so the Tigers claimed the ultimate revenge on Newcastle today.
    The Tigers swooped on Gibbs, signing the 19-year-old centre or second-rower on a three year deal which will start in 2018.
    The Dubbo born youngster is one of the best up-and-comers in the Knights’ ranks and his defection is a blow to Nathan Brown’s plans for the future.
    The Tigers continue to spend big money, with Gibbs the 12th new face signed by coach Ivan Cleary for 2018.
    He is expected to train in the pre-season with the full-time squad and be given his chance to shine in the pre-season trials.

  • Good signing as it is a low risk big reward if he developes into a gun first grader. Has big raps on him interesting to see what cleary can get out of him.

    Cleary sees something in him with the 3 year deal being given.



  • Low risk high reward signing, Hopefully it’s the latter. Welcome to the club Heath.



  • At 188cm and 99kgs as a teenager he will fill out to the low 100kgs, and will have a good byuild for a centre, if he’s got some pace. Seeing he can still play NYC next season there’s no rush for him.

    I thought NYC is finished



  • Sounds like a good prospect. Let’s hope he’s one of those NYC players that adapts to FG well and can push for a spot next season.

    Centre.



  • Good - these are the sort of signings we should be looking at to complement the top 17. Impressive younger guys from opposing 20s squads. High upside, very little risk.

    This seems to be a Depth Center signing but yes, what about Miilne and Suli?

    Also any relation to Bryce Gibbs (NRL, not the other slop sport)? If so can we Velcro the ball to him?

    Please, if the young man was born in Dubbo I’d be more interested to know whether he is any relation to Ron Gibbs who was born in Brewarrina. Heath played with Tristan Sailor in one of the Kari junior rep teams.
