Bird has been slapped with grade two contrary conduct charge by the judiciary after a tackle on Rodney Howe during yesterday's 36-32 loss to the Melbourne Storm at Toyota Park.
He faces a possible one game suspension and with the Sharks having a bye in round two this weekend, the young five-eighth will miss the Broncos game in round three if found guilty.
The news is better though for Sydney Rooster's centre Justin Hodges who has been charged with a grade one careless high tackle. Hodges will not accrue enough points to be suspended even if he contests the charge and is found guilty.
