Gibbs commits to being Tiger for life

Wests Tigers prop Bryce Gibbs has extended his contract with the NRL club until the end of the 2014 season.

The Western Suburbs junior was already locked up until the end of 2012, but his new two-year deal takes him a step closer to being a Tiger for life.

The 26-year-old is a regular City Origin representative and has been one of Tim Sheens' most reliable campaigners over recent seasons.

Gibbs was one of the young stars who spurred the joint-venture club to their 2005 premiership, and is hoping there's more success to come.

"I wanted to stay with Wests Tigers and this new contract means I can be a Tiger for life," said Gibbs, who got married in Fiji in the off-season.

"It's a great club to be a part of and I just hope I can contribute to the team's success in the future."

Wests Tigers chief executive Stephen Humphreys said the new contract for Gibbs was well deserved.

"Bryce has played his part in helping this developing team become more and more successful," Humphreys said.

"It's extremely satisfying for the club to see a product of our development system become an integral member of our NRL squad. I'm sure he has some exciting years to come."
