Ryan Bailey Set To Sign With Bradford Bulls

Ryan Bailey is understood to have agreed to terms with the Bradford Bulls on a 1-year deal.

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


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 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 play 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.

Bradford,  who were heavily liked with Bailey before the club went into administration, but their off-field troubles made talks to be put on hold.

Now that thing at the Bulls look to have stabilised it is believed Bailey will play the remainder of the season with Bradford after agreeing to terms.

The Bulls definitely need to bolster their pack, after the departures of Mitch Clark, Paul Clough, Dan Fleming and Steve Crossley.
