Bird won’t fly to Cronulla

Greg Bird will not be joining Todd Carney at Cronulla next season.

Bird’s agent Gavin Orr on Sunday hosed down rumours suggesting that his client wanted out of the Gold Coast Titans because of an ongoing feud with skipper Scott Prince.

There were suggestions over the weekend that Bird was keen on a shift back to the Sharkies, especially after a supposed argument with Prince.

However, Orr said the back-rower would be honouring his contract on the holiday strip – which doesn’t expire until the end of next season.

“Greg is contracted to the Titans until the end of next year,” Orr said.

“So he will be playing with the Titans until at least the end of next year. After that, he may choose to look around and see what’s available.

“But right now, he’s looking no further ahead than next season. Everyone knows the Gold Coast had a poor year and Birdy’s keen on having a big pre-season to help turn their fortunes around.”

Asked about a rumoured rift between Bird and Prince, the manager continued: “The pair played golf together over the weekend – that doesn’t sound like two blokes having a blue does it?

“Greg hasn’t said anything to me to indicate he’s not happy up there. Greg is on the Gold Coast and ready to give his all for the club in 2012.”

Meanwhile, Carney’s impending signature at Cronulla has seen the Sharkies firm in NRL premiership betting from $51 to $34.
