Prize Brisbane Broncos recruit Jack Bird’s season of misery could already be over after coach Wayne Bennett confirmed the former Cronulla star needs more surgery.

Bird, who signed a four-year deal with the Broncos last year, missed the pre-season after undergoing off-season shoulder surgery and has been horribly out of form since making his club debut in Round 3 against Wests Tigers.

The 23-year-old hasn’t played since Round 10 against Manly, with Bennett revealing the $3.5 million utility must now go under the knife again to repair his injured sternum.

“I’m hoping his season isn’t over, they are saying if he has the operation it could be six weeks so there’s a possibility he could be back this year,” Bennett told The Courier Mail’s Peter Badel.

In a huge blow to the start of the Brisbane Broncos ’ 2018 campaign, new prized- recruit Jack Bird is set to miss the opening of the season as he undergoes a full shoulder reconstruction as reported by The Mole today. “We’ll know more after the surgery but we’re hopeful he’ll be ready for Round 1.

Broncos captain Darius Boyd sees similar traits in new recruit Jack Bird ahead of club debut. Sent for shoulder surgery that the Sharks didn’t feel was necessary while he was at Cronulla shortly after moving to Brisbane , Bird has also battled a sternum injury in pre-season.

“But to be honest, Jack can’t play at the moment. He’s in pain and he’s no good for us if he can’t play to his potential.”

Bennett publicly criticised the Sharks following Bird’s arrival last year, accusing The Shire Club of failing to disclose the severity of his shoulder injury.

Broncos medical staff decided the former NSW utility needed a shoulder reconstruction, robbing him of an off-season and delaying the start to his first campaign at Red Hill.
