Bryce Gibbs Is Suddenly Being Linked To Adelaide FC Again

Oct 12, 2017


Bryce Gibbs’ name is again popping up in connection with the Adelaide Crows after the club finalised its deal with the Demons for departing defender Jake Lever.

The Crows previously suggested they had moved on from Gibbs -- who unsuccessfully tried to move to Adelaide last year -- and Carlton are adamant he is a required player.

But with the picks they collected from Melbourne for Lever, Herald Sun footy writer Jon Ralph says the Crows are now in a prime spot to recruit the Carlton star.

“If you’ve got picks 10, 16 and 18, and you’ve just missed out on the premiership, you’re not going to the draft,” Ralph told SEN on Thursday.

“You’re going back to Bryce and saying we know you want to come here.

“Those who have spoken to Bryce in the past week say he is still keen to get home.

“If Carlton can get picks 10 and 16, or even 10 and 18, I’d take that deal and go to the draft with three top 20 picks and keep building for there.”

Earlier in the day Matthew Lloyd also wasn’t ruling out another Adelaide play for Gibbs:

"Some believe they’ll come again for Bryce Gibbs," Lloyd said on AFL Trade Radio.

"You’d love to know what he’d like to do. Adelaide have said what they’ve said but Bryce hasn’t said anything."
