The Brisbane Broncos have entered the Jack Bird sweepstakes and have tabled a massive offer for the Cronulla Sharks star.

Newcastle and Parramatta had been the most likely clubs to lure the Origin utility from Cronulla but the Eels pulled their offer last week and most thought it was a two horse race between the Knights and Sharks.

But a late lucrative bid by the Broncos might be enough to get Bird thinking about moving to Brisbane.

Fox Sports is reporting that Brisbane have tabled a $3.6 million deal over three years with the added lure of playing at five-eighth to Bird, a deal that trumps the offer currently on the table from the Newcastle Knights.

With Ben Hunt taking up a multi-million deal with the St George Illawarra Dragons in 2018, the Broncos are on the look out for a halves partner for Anthony Milford and Jack Bird might just be that man.
