Ryan Bailey Agrees to a 2-year Deal with Toronto Wolfpack

Ryan Bailey is understood to have agreed to terms with the Canadian expansion the Toronto Wolfpack on a 2-year deal.

Bailey, 32, has made 329 Super League appearances with 307 of them being with Leeds.


Bailey has been without a club after Warrington decided not to renew his contract at the end of the 2016 season and was heavily linked to the Bradford Bulls, before they went into liquidation.

In 2015 he moved to Hull KR, after being deemed ‘not fit enough’ to play former club Leeds Rhinos. Bailey was released because of personal issues after only playing just one game for the Rovers.


A month later he joined the Castleford Tigers for the remainder of the season where he rejoined former coach Daryl Powell. He played 6 games and scored one try before being released at the end of the season.


Warrington Wolves announced the signing of Bailey on a one-year contract for the 2016 season where he would played under Tony Smith again with whom he won 2 Grand Finals with at Leeds.


Bailey made 15 appearances for the Wolves, but his contract was not renewed for the 2017 season and was forced to leave the club.

The Toronto Wolfpack who are undefeated in League One are believed to start a spending spree as they look to earn promotion this season and then look to challenge for a spot in Super League in the 2018 season.

Bailey will partner New Zealand international Fuifui Moimoi and form one of the strongest forward combination in the competition.

Ryan Bailey has made 329 Super League appearances and has represented Great Britain (2004) and England (2006) 4 times each since making his debut for Leeds in the 2002 season.
