The club later confirmed the embroidery error which saw ‘Dargons’ instead of Dragons printed on the front of Bird’s jersey alongside other match details.

It is understood that no one at the club checked the spelling on the printed jerseys before they were delivered to the club ahead of the match.

Since then, League Tees – which is known for its retro football designs and merchandise – has released an ‘Up the Dargons’ jersey for sale.

The t-shirts come in two colors – red and white – and can be purchased for $34 in a range of sizes on their website.

The “up the” prefix is ​​a nod to the exhortation that affiliated with the Warriors during the 2023 NRL season.

The Dragons’ mistake was first noticed by eagle-eyed fans when Bird spoke to Nine’s Emma Lawrence after the match on Sunday.

While the Dragons fell short of a victory in Bird’s milestone game, suffering a 20-10 loss to the Sharks, the center was grateful after a tumultuous road to his 150th game.

“It’s been a tough journey and it’s taken a while to get here,” he told Nine.

“I’ve been playing freshman for about 10 years and I just hit 150 (now).

“Looking back, it’s been tough, but I’m happy to finally get here and there’s nothing better than playing at Shark Park where it all started.

“It’s a shame we didn’t get the win, but I’m grateful to be back on the field and to have reached the 150 mark.”
