Titans challenge Bird grading

The iSelect Titans will dispute the grading of the NRL judiciary charge and take the case to the judiciary panel tomorrow night.

The club and Bird feel he has a valid case to have the charge, which carries 630 demerit points, downgraded. Bird was yesterday handed a grade three dangerous throw charge by the NRL's video review panel for a tackle on South Sydney's Bryson Harrison at Cbus Super Stadium last Saturday night.

Here what coach John Cartwright had to say to the media today about the club's decision.
