I hope everyone will get on board for next year and we can keep this club alive!
Thank you again.

Greg Gibbins

Greg Gibbins 1987 – 2015.
 
It is with deep regret that we say goodbye to our friend, team mate and highly respected Warrior Greg Gibbins.
 
Gibbo played the majority of his Junior footy with the Warriors before joining the Senior ranks in 2003 at the age of 16, his talent having already been identified.
 
Gibbo played 111 games for the Warriors and was a point scoring machine, during his senior career crossing for 61 tries whilst proving handy with the boot landing 199 goals.
 
Gibbo was more than passionate about his Rugby League and was always looking for ways to improve and get the most out of his game, he was highly respected by his teammates and they always knew a try from Gibbo was always in the offing, whilst they knew he could be relied upon in their moment of need.
 
Gibbo also spent time with The Entrance, before switching to the Wyong Roos last year and we are sure he had the same positive impact at both of these clubs that he created and has left at the Warriors.
 
He prided himself on his fitness and physical well being and was nearly always the ‘quietest’ guy in the room – (not always that hard when surrounded by the Warriors team).
 
It is hard to fathom why tragedies like this occur and how unfair it seems but we can all be happy knowing our lives have all been better for having known GIBBO.
 
We will have a ‘Tribute’ book available for signing at today’s game, please see Greg Banks or Steve Luxford if you would like to leave your thoughts regarding Gibbo.
 
We also thank you in advance for observing a minute’s silence before both the reserve and 1st grade games.
 
Northern Lakes would also like to thank the CCDRL and the other clubs within the Division who have offered their condolences and support.
 
 
 RIP our friend, teammate and Warrior.
