Jack Bird’s long awaited return to action for the Brisbane Broncos hasn’t excited fans, with the premiership-winning centre copping plenty of stick on social media following the loss to the Storm.

He set up Corey Oates’ first try but wasn’t the attacking threat that many were hoping for after what was reported to be a particularly impressive pre-season from the 23-year-old.

However, fans were quick to judge his performance based on an early error, and he finished with 127 running metres, three tackle-breaks and 11 tackles.

He was hit hard by Suliasi Vunivalu and coughed up the ball for Curtis Scott to race away and score for Melbourne, but was relatively strong in his first game back.
