Titans to unleash 'Greg Bird clone'

‌A mid-season recruit from the Brisbane Broncos, Hipgrave will make his NRL debut against the Roosters at Allianz Stadium on Saturday and bring the type of aggressive intent that Bird was so famous for during his 14-year career in the NRL.

Bird departure 'hard to comprehend': James

The reigning Paul Broughton Medal winner had a breakout year in 2016 but is still coming to terms with the fact that Bird won't be at the club alongside him next season.

Greg Bird fined over Byron Bay pub antics

The former Gold Coast forward, who a week ago left the Titans to join French side Catalans in the English Super League, has copped a $550 penalty over the September 17 incident.

Police last month claimed Bird and his group were asked to leave the premises because of their "levels of intoxication", alleging a brawl had broken out with security staff.

"It's alleged a 32-year-old man was asked to leave a licensed premises by security staff but failed to comply," NSW police said in a statement to AAP on Tuesday.


Ryan James Origin-ready says Bird

James was the one who powered over the line to put his side in front in the 13th minute and it was James again pushing through trying to get to South Sydney half Adam Reynolds in the 85th minute when he was obstructed by Nathan Brown which saw the successful field goal over-turned.

He has been talked about as a future Origin representative since coming into the NRL as an 18-year-old front-rower in 2010 but with the injury to Roosters back-rower Boyd Cordner Bird believes his time has come.

Kicking game to drive Blues home

The cry came from a Blues teammate as new halfback Adam Reynolds, from 30 metres out, stabbed a kick towards the in-goal of the Novotel Pacific Bay Resort training field literally minutes into the Blues' first training run of the camp, on Wednesday afternoon.

The Steeden jagged past the try-line, popped up off its point then stopped dead perhaps a metre from the dead ball line and a metre inside the touch in goal line, drawing raucous cheers from the players riding the play or perhaps jeering the naysayer (from the volume, we'll assume it was Andrew Fifita).
