After 130-consecutive games for North Melbourne, Gibson joined Adelaide in the AFL Trade Period. The versatile veteran, who finished equal-sixth in the Kangaroos’ best and fairest in 2017, showcased his endurance and work ethic by winning the 2km time trial when the senior Crows returned to training in December. Gibson has played the majority of his AFL career on the wing, but also has the capacity to play as an inside midfielder or tagger.
