Greg Bird stripped of Titans leadership after public peeing incident

GREG Bird has been stripped of his Gold Coast Titans co-captaincy and fined $15,000 after he was caught peeing near a police car on a Byron Bay street last weekend.

The 30-year-old forward was issued with an infringement notice by NSW police last Sunday morning after he was allegedly caught urinating near a fully-marked police car parked outside a Bay Street pub just 24 hours after his wedding.

The announcement of his punishment came Friday morning after Bird faced the club’s disciplinary committee on Thursday.


Fellow player James Roberts was also fined $3000 and ordered to undergo rehab following a boozy night out in November.
