Bronze

The defender had a solid 2018, averaging 19.2 disposals and 4.1 rebound 50s per game. With Jake Lever's absence, Hibberd took on more responsibility down back supporting Sam Frost and Oscar McDonald. Plays at his best when allowed to run and carry off half back, and should benefit from being in the same squad as Jake Lever and Steven May.
