Rd 25 NRL Team Announcement

Lachlan Burr will replace the injured Greg Bird (quad) for the last home game of the season against St George Illawarra at Cbus Super Stadium on Sunday (4pm kick-off).

Burr returns from a one-match suspension to wear the number 13 jersey of Bird who hasn’t given up hope of being fit for the last clash of the year, against North Queensland in Townsville.
