AT A Glance

Clubs: North Melbourne
Debut: AFL 2006 ( Hawthorn 2010 )
Recruited from: Port Melbourne / North Melbourne
Brownlow Votes:-

There are few higher accolades than winning a club best and fairest in a premiership year, a feat Gibson achieved in 2013. The courageous key defender was outstanding all year, rarely beaten by his opponent, reading the play superbly, and helping on the counter-attack. He had the most one-percenters in the AFL and more rebound 50s than any other Hawk. Was nominated in the All-Australian squad of 40 and unlucky to miss a place in the final 22. There are few better players at knowing when to leave a direct opponent to get to a more dangerous position.

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).
