Gibbs links to Bridgend Blue Bulls

Scott Gibbs, just a month after announcing his retirement from Rugby Union, has now been linked to the Bridgend Blue Bulls in the Rugby League Conference. The Blue Bulls, who won the national tournament in 2003 already boast former cross-code greats including Kevin Ellis, Jon Devereux and Allan Bateman, and the news that Gibbs may cross would seriously make them favourites to retain the tournament title.

Gibbs, who finished off his Rugby career captaining the Neath-Swansea Ospreys in the Wales Rugby Union last year, won 53 caps for the Welsh national team, and appeared on 3 Lions tours.

He also played Rugby League for St Helens in the 1990?s, coming across to the 13 man code with a large number of other Welsh Union stars. He made the Welsh League representative side 3 times, playing against Australia in 1994 and against England and France in 1995, and depending on how he goes in the Summer Conference, may have a chance to make it again in 2004 with the European Nations Cup confirmed at the end of the year.
