Jack Bird and Mitchell Moses were reportedly close to completing a player swap at the end of the season, before plans were rubbished by Brisbane Broncos coach Wayne Bennett.

With both parties struggling in 2018 – Bird playing just eight games due to injury and Moses failed to recreate his 2017 form with the cellar-dwelling Eels – the option of a player swap loomed, although Bennett was against the switch, which effectively ruled out the move altogether.

The Sydney Morning Herald understand Bird has confided in friends and told them he wants to return to Sydney, although given he’s on a long-term deal (along with Moses), it doesn’t look like he’ll be departing Red Hill anytime soon.

Moses could certainly strengthen the Broncos in the halves and could form a deadly partnership with Anthony Milford, although after speaking to NRL.com on Wednesday afternoon, it looks as though he’s in for the long haul at Parramatta.

“We kind of know what went wrong this year but it’s too late to fix it now. We’ll fix it ahead of next year.”

  1. “……Moses could certainly strengthen the Broncos in the halves and could form a deadly partnership…..”

    You are joking right??

    An absolute imposter – most overrated player in the game – a speed hump in defence & clueless in attack

  2. Lol Brisbane should just have faith in ol Wayno. 1) Broncos haven’t had a decent, dominant half in years 2) Moses would offer no more than Nikorima
