Brownlow Votes:-

A linchpin of the Hawthorn backline again, Gibson finished the season in fine style with a brilliant performance in the Grand Final, where his spoiling, rebounding and reading of the play came to the fore. It wasn’t all plain sailing, however, and he missed eight games with a torn pectoral muscle mid-season. But he prepared superbly while on the sidelines and didn’t play a bad game upon his return. The addition of James Frawley to the Hawk backline in 2015 should allow Gibson licence to play an even more attacking role, which is a tantalising thought.

Draft history: 2005 Rookie Draft selection (North Melbourne) No. 7; 2005 rookie elevation (North Melbourne); 2009 NAB AFL Draft traded by North Melbourne for No. 25 (Aaron Black) and No. 41 (Ayden Kennedy).
