Papua New Guinea international Edene Gebbie has arrived in Brisbane for his mandatory 14-day quarantine period ahead of his transition down to Sydney to join Wests Tigers.
With no direct flights from Papua New Guinea to Sydney, Gebbie will quarantine in isolation in Brisbane for two weeks before linking up with his new teammates.
Having signed a train-and-trial deal with the club late last year, the 25-year-old has been delayed in joining the club due to raft of travel and biosecurity issues, but the finish line is certainly in sight for the talented outside back.
The club would like to extend its thanks to Marsden State High in Brisbane, who generously supplied Gebbie with training gear and equipment to get him ready for the start of the 2021 season with Wests Tigers.
Having starred for PNG Hunters and Wynnum-Manly in the Intrust Super Cup competition in Queensland, Gebbie will add further speed and competition for spots in the club's outside backs when he commences his train-and-trial contract.
Wests Tigers NRL squad kick off their season next Sunday against Canberra.
Match: Raiders v Wests Tigers
Round 1 -
