The club that would “fit perfectly” for out-of-favour Gibbs


Terry Wallace believes Port Adelaide should consider making a stunning swoop for out-of-favour Adelaide midfielder Bryce Gibbs.

Gibbs, 30, was sensationally dropped for the third time this season, despite an improved performance in last week’s win over Melbourne in Darwin.

Having returned to South Australia in a blockbuster trade that saw two first-round draft picks exchanged to former club Carlton, Wallace says the former No.1 pick would provide the Power with additional midfield depth and class.

When asked which team could use Gibbs on The Match Committee, the AFL Hall of Famer replied: “Port Adelaide”.

“Why wouldn’t you look at something like that if it’s not going to cost you much? They’re almost saying: 'We’re throwing him out the door'.

"If you’re Port Adelaide, you’ve brought in some good young players over the last 12 months, if he’s not costing you anything, why wouldn’t you add him to your depth?

“When you think about Port Adelaide at the moment, they haven’t had Ollie Wines, they haven’t had (Brad) Ebert for portions, (Tom) Rockliff has been missing, he would fit in beautifully into that mix.

“Having gone back home, you probably don’t want to uproot and do that all again. I think he would fit perfectly.”

Gibbs has played 260 AFL games since debuting in 2007 and is contracted to the Crows until the end of 2021.
