Biography

Darting Manly halfback, with his characteristic running action of head held high and socks around his ankles, missed the club's grand final campaign in 1978 because of injury. Gibbs’ whole-hearted efforts earned him his place on the 1978 Kangaroo tour but it was obvious once the squad arrived in England that he had carried an injury on tour. Gibbs played in just 3 matches on tour and had to have two operations on his troublesome hamstring in 1979. While injuries forced him into premature retirement two seasons later, Gibbs subsequently built a highly successful career as a sports commentator with leading radio station 2UE and as manager of close friend and former teammate Paul Vautin.
