Bird joins Broncos on big deal

Jack Bird has accepted a multi-year contract at the Brisbane Broncos, the Cronulla Sharks confirmed on Thursday afternoon.

Despite the Sharks making its highest ever financial offer to secure a current player, it could not match the multimillion dollar deal offered to Bird to join the Broncos.

"While we are always disappointed to see any player move on from our club, and particularly one of Jack’s talent, it is also important to note that the future of our club is not built around any one individual," Sharks CEO Lyall Gorman said.

Damian Keogh, Club Chairman reiterated that; "Our Club’s responsibility and long term strategy is to ensure we allocate our salary cap across the playing group to give us the best chance of sustained on-field success."
