Ronny Gibbs is one of the western region’s most loved sport and community leaders and his impact on the community has been recognised.

Ronny – a former footballer who has dedicated his life to his sport of Rugby League and to sharing that passion on and off the field – has been honoured as this year’s Tony McGrane Award recipient.

The award is named in honour of Anthony Michael McGrane, who was Mayor of Dubbo from 1991 to 1999, and was later elected as the NSW Member for Dubbo until his death in 2004.

Tony McGrane always worked for the betterment of his regional community, and the naming of this award is a fitting tribute to a remarkable man.

Ronny grew up in Bourke playing for the Bourke Warriors Rugby League Football team, and then played professionally in Australia and England and has been working in Dubbo and across the outback since the late 1990s.
