Biography

Chris Gibson's involvement with Yorkshire Carnegie goes back over a decade having first got involved under former Director of Rugby Phil Davies. 

Gibson began his career with Wakefield as a talented centre for the College Grove-based side in the 1970s. His performances soon caught the eye of Rugby League scouts and he was tempted to turn professional and signed for Leeds in 1977. 

He kicked five goals out of five attempts on his debut in a 40-11 win over Dewsbury at Headingley on 24th September 1977.

He made his final appearance for the club off the bench against Leigh at Headingley on 8th September 1979 before a move to York a year later, where he spent five seasons.

In total, Chris made 35 appearances for Leeds Rugby League, scoring four tries and 84 goals. He remains a key part of the club to this day.
