Bryce Gibbs’ exceptional run of injury-free games came to an abrupt end last season. Heading into 2015, Gibbs had played a remarkable 177 games out of a possible 182, and looked set to play his 200th game in 2015. But a run of back and pectoral injuries restricted the 26-year-old to just 10 matches.
There’s no doubt Gibbs will be looking to bounce back in 2016 to recapture his durability from years gone by and notch up his 200th game.
Draft history: 2006 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Carlton) No. 1 overall.
