Broncos coach Wayne Bennett slams reports Jack Bird will backflip on Brisbane contract

WAYNE Bennett says there is “no doubt” Cronulla’s NSW State of Origin star Jack Bird will play for Brisbane in the NRL next year.

Bennett has dismissed reports that claim Bird had been close to reneging on his lucrative four-year deal, which commences in 2018, ahead of the Broncos’ blockbuster Friday night clash with the Sharks.

Bennett said he felt obligated to “step in” and slam a weekend report that suggested Bird would backflip on his reported $ 3.5 million Broncos deal and remain with the defending premiers.
