NRL contract saga weighing on Bird: Holmes

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 12/04/2017 Scott Bailey

The pressure of deciding where his NRL future lies is weighing down Cronulla's Jack Bird, according to teammate Valentine Holmes.

Holmes and Bird have played together since their time with the Junior Kangaroos in 2014 and while the former signed a contract extension with the Sharks before the 2017 campaign kicked off, Bird is weighing up offers from Newcastle and Brisbane.

"I was lucky to get it done before the season started because I knew it would be a massive headache for myself and I can definitely see it in him," Holmes said.
