Bird to fill five-eighth role
Aquis Titans coach Neil Henry has made an interesting tactical switch for tonight’s clash with Brisbane Broncos by moving lock Greg Bird to five-eighth.
There has been much speculation about whether 22-year-old Cameron Cullen would make his debut in the big local derby which will attract a crowd of over 20,000 but Henry has made the decision to move Bird to the position where he has won two man of the match awards for NSW.
Agnatius Paasi will come into the starting line in the back row and Eddy Pettybourne will come onto the bench.
The team is: Mead, Don, Hoffman, Olive, Macdonald, Bird, Taylor, Shillington, Friend (capt), James, McQueen, Taia, Paasi. Interchange: Douglas, Pulu, Mortimer, Pettybourne.
