Bird a Shark for three years

Greg Bird has re-signed with the Sharks on a three year deal worth what is believed to be $500 000. The signing is good news for the Sharks, with interest in Bird having been shown by both South Sydney and Melbourne.

Bird originally arrived at the club from Newcastle in 2002. He went through a difficult period, facing scrutiny with the judiciary on a number of occasions. However, in 2006 he has matured into a valuable member of the team and his signing is a massive boost for the club.
