Australian and NSW State of Origin back-rower Greg Bird has been released from the final year of his NRL contract with Gold Coast after seven seasons.

In a statement on Wednesday night, the Titans said they had agreed to Bird's request with immediate effect after playing 129 games and helping the club to finals appearances in 2010 and 2016.

"No one can doubt the commitment Greg has played with throughout his career whether it be for his club, his state or his country. He is a fierce competitor and always gives 100 per cent which is why his teammates at all levels love playing alongside him," CEO Graham Annesley said.
