Australian rugby league international Greg Bird has been cleared of drugs charges over his alleged involvement in a cocaine supply ring.

The Gold Coast Magistrate Court on Thursday dismissed charges against Bird and former Gold Coast teammate Ashley Harrison for lack of evidence. Another Titans player, Beau Falloon, had his case on the same charges dismissed Wednesday.

The charges arose from a Queensland state Crime and Corruption Commission investigation last year which implicated present and past National Rugby League players.

Karmichael Hunt, a former Australian rugby league international now with the Queensland Reds in Super Rugby, pled guilty in March to four charges of possessing cocaine. He was suspended for six weeks by the Australian Rugby Union, ordered to undergo a drug rehabilitation program and fined A$30,000 ($23,400).
