Title: Bird's NRL season likely over: Bennett
Post by: RNA on June 15, 2018, 11:21:20 AM
Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett says Jack Bird's NRL season is all but over after booking the prized Cronulla recruit for surgery.

Bennett said the Broncos were preparing to "get by without him" for 2018 after Bird finally succumbed to the sternum injury that has plagued him for nine months.

"It''s been a poor year by Jack's standards but none of it has been in his control - we probably won't see much of him this year now," Bennett said ahead of Saturday night's clash with Bird's former club the Sharks.
