Prize Brisbane Broncos recruit Jack Bird’s season of misery could already be over after coach Wayne Bennett confirmed the former Cronulla star needs more surgery.

Bird, who signed a four-year deal with the Broncos last year, missed the pre-season after undergoing off-season shoulder surgery and has been horribly out of form since making his club debut in Round 3 against Wests Tigers.

The 23-year-old hasn’t played since Round 10 against Manly, with Bennett revealing the $3.5 million utility must now go under the knife again to repair his injured sternum.

“I’m hoping his season isn’t over, they are saying if he has the operation it could be six weeks so there’s a possibility he could be back this year,” Bennett told The Courier Mail’s Peter Badel.

“But to be honest, Jack can’t play at the moment. He’s in pain and he’s no good for us if he can’t play to his potential.”

Bennett publicly criticised the Sharks following Bird’s arrival last year, accusing The Shire Club of failing to disclose the severity of his shoulder injury.

Broncos medical staff decided the former NSW utility needed a shoulder reconstruction, robbing him of an off-season and delaying the start to his first campaign at Red Hill.

Bennett's comments add further spice to an already contentious relationship between the two clubs, with the Sharks to host the Broncos in a Round 15 clash on Saturday.

Bird, a member of Cronulla’s 2016 premiership-winning side, has managed just eight games for the Broncos this season.
