It's not Blair's fault Gibbs has been released by WT and anyway WT are yet to sign Blair, for all we know WT could be after another quality foward.

FTR, I never remember Gibbs singling out a player and I don't think (in such an important game) he'll be doing so this time. He'll be going about his business professionally as he does week after week and has been year after year.
With Wests in the finals, ANYTHING'S POSSIBLE

Gibbs Vs Blair indeed...

Game averages this season calculated from nrl stats;

Gibbs 1.88m/104kg: 47 minutes played, 9.6 hit ups, 80.5m, 20 tackles, 1 missed tackle, .5 errors.
Blair 1.88m/108kg; 74 minutes played, 11.4 hit ups, 77.4m, 26 tackles, 2.4 missed tackles, .7 errors.

Interestingly Gibbs missing only about 5% of tackles while Blair misses nearly 10%.
Blair has about 1.5 offloads and Gibbs .25.

Good match-up and I think Bryce has plenty of pride to play for. Lookin forward to watching these two!

If the side has good line speed in defence and can cut down on the time Cronk and Widdop have with the ball, then they're a good chance. If they sit back on their heels Melbourne will give it to them. As for Gibbs, as long as he defends well around the ruck and carts the ball up hard, I'll be happy.
Agreed, plus I want to see the side-step again! Does Blair have a side-step? I don't think so.
Cheering for the mighty Wests Tigers, all the way from France.

Blair has a big side-step mate - his biggest asset in attack is his footwork at the line to create space before the collision!!!

Do some of you people actually watch other teams play????

Having said that - I'd prefer to see Gibbo & Fifita stay!!!

Gibbs will have a point to prove, and may look for Blair when defending, but don't think we'll see much.

I think they will both have a point to prove . Especially if Blair has already signed . Might be a bit of niggle . Blair will try and endear himself to his new club and its fans

Does Blair have a dummy that could fool a fullback?? Does Blair know when to give away smart penalties to save the team when they're scrambling??

Gibbs is a GRUB!! But he's OUR grub!!

Smash'em Gibbo!!

Looks like my post was edited, THEN deleted....make up your minds mods!
Soft indeed. ')

Red, your comprehension is again under question.....dunno how you come to the conclusion
you do by what I wrote.
To summarise I'd just love to see a good old fashioned one on one contest between to two not unlike Laurie & Moi Moi

Gibbs will play great for the rest of the season if he stays injury free....and will break his try break before the seasons end
