A Wiganer who returned to his hometown club in 2020 and went on to play in a second consecutive Betfred Super League Grand Final.

  • Bibby is a 23-year-old centre who was born in Wigan.
  • He is a former Orrell St James ARLFC junior.
  • A versatile player who can operate on the right wing, centre or at second row as seen in his five years at Salford Red Devils.
  • He made his professional debut for Salford in September 2015 against Hull KR in the old Super 8s Qualifiers.
  • In 2016, he went on loan at North Wales Crusaders and Oldham RLFC where he played three times at each club. He also featured in six games for Salford that year.
  • A year later, Bibby played 17 times for Salford, scoring six tries and also went on loan at Halifax RLFC and made three appearances.
  • In 2018, he rocked up the most games he has played in a single season, featuring in 26 in all competitions, scoring 11 tries.
  • His best season to date came in 2019, as he made 29 appearances and scored 17 tries.
  • Bibby played in all five games for Salford against Wigan in 2019 and went on to feature in Salford’s first ever Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford. Overall, he made 79 appearances for Salford.
  • After his consistent impressive performances, Bibby signed for Wigan on a two-year deal during the 2019 campaign.
  • Bibby would go on to be a consistent figure in Wigan’s 2020 side, making 19 appearances and scoring five tries. His versatility saw the Wiganer play a number of roles in the back line throughout 2020, and his performance undoubtedly helped the Club in lifting the League Leaders’ Shield in November.
