Jack Bird was worried because he questioned agreeing to a new deal with the Dragons, but the former State of Origin weapon announced that his best days were ahead of him.
According to Danny Weidler of Nine, Bird is set to sign a new three-year deal with St. George’s Elvara by the end of 2025.
Although Utility has already won an NRL Premiership and made five appearances for New South Wales, he believes he could be set for his best football because the past few years have been hampered by injuries.

“I haven’t played too many feet in the last few years. I’ve been injured. So I haven’t really shown what I can do. I personally know I still have a lot of feet,” Bird said.
“Believe it or not, I do. I just know I can play better football than I do right now, and I’m ready to prove it.”
The Bird have played 66 first-grade games with the Sharks but the Broncos had a tough run in the face of injury, handling just 17 matches in two seasons.
The 27-year-old has run smoothly on this Red V.

“I’ve always been taught to give up,” Bird said.
“So when those injuries happened I knew I wasn’t done. I knew I had a lot more to give and I knew I wouldn’t give up. I’ve been in this position before.
“I did an ACL when I was young and I had rheumatism and I was told I would never play footy again, and when I started playing again I knew it could really stop me.”
