Jack Bird to Dragons confirmed: https://www.dragons.com.au/news/2020/11/06/dragons-return-for-bird-confirmed/
St George Illawarra have confirmed the signing of Brisbane Broncos utility Jack Bird on a two-year deal, tying him to the Dragons until at least the end of the 2022 NRL Telstra Premiership season.

The local Berkeley Eagles junior will re-join the Red V after progressing through the club's lower grades prior to departing for the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks in 2015, where he made his NRL debut.

The premiership-winning, New South Wales State of Origin representative has spent the past three seasons with the Broncos, although consecutive season-ending knee injuries restricted the 25-year-old to 17 games at Brisbane.

"It's great to see Jack return to the Dragons with him being a local junior as well as his capabilities as a player," General manager of football Ben Haran said.

"We wanted to ensure that Jack returning to the Dragons was right for us as a club, which is why we exercised due diligence around his well-documented injury troubles.

"Jack's a real competitor with a winning attitude and is a player who attacks the game each and every time he plays. We're looking forward to seeing him bring that to the Dragons upon his return."

Bird's arrival follows the signing of Poasa Faamausili and the retention of Mat and Max Feagai, Josh Kerr, Jackson Ford, Mikaele Ravalawa, Adam Clune, Junior Amone and Tyrell Sloan ahead of the Dragons' 2021 campaign.

Read some rubbish that I won’t link. Chambers to knights as they have gone cold on Roberts.

So is Roberts now free to sign with other clubs for minimum wage and Souths take no cap hit!?

Anyone willing to risk minimum wage on Roberts deserves him.

Ahh West Tigers. First you choose to keep Nofoaluma /Talau over JAC and now you're going for Roberts.

According to today's Daily Telegraph the Tigers are not going to pay overs to sign Roberts. They are reporting he will have to take a substantial pay cut from what he was on at Souths if he signs with them.

Apparently the Sharks are not interested. I'm not sure it's the best signing for the Sharks as they have alot halves or fill in halves as it is. That's not even taking into account Shaun Johnson. Too many chefs can spoil the broth.

Benji Marshall looking for a deal $400 000 a year probably could get that in UK Superleague. But in the NRL being in the twilight of his career may be a bridge too far.
