Bird to make NSW Blues debut

Jack Bird has been confirmed to make his NSW Blues debut after Josh Morris today withdrew through injury.

Manly utility Dylan Walker will start in the centres with Bird to take his place in the utility role on the NSW bench.

Bird has been a revelation in the Cronulla Sharks side over the past one and a half seasons and has well and truly earned his spot in Laurie Daley's side.
