Bird moves to clarify incident


Gold Coast Titans forward Greg Bird moved to clarify an incident he was involved in at a hotel on Saturday.

Bird, 31, said he, and others, stopped a fight involving a member of his group and security after they were denied entry to the Brunswick Hotel.

An Australia and New South Wales representative, Bird responded on Instagram after reports surfaced over the incident.

"I would like to put out the actual version of events from the Saturday night at the Brunswick Hotel in mention," he wrote on Wednesday.

"I was with a group of people on a bucks party and we all were refused entry.

"I left the premise and someone from our party stayed and got into a physical altercation with the security.

"Me along with everyone else in the group ran into separate the two involved and no one else threw any punches.

"There is footage and witnesses to verify this."

The Titans were eliminated in the first week of the NRL finals after losing to the Brisbane Broncos.
