Ryan Bailey going to the NRL is this the same NRL Mickey Paea was going to, I will believe it when I see it.

Be interesting to see how he goes in the NRL. Should make for good viewing on Premier Sports.

He's being endorsed by Delaney so it can only be a matter of time :sarcastic:

Does he have the essential qualifications?

not sure if a criminal record is a pre requisite for entrance to Australia any more (sorry could not resist).

THE Broncos are hunting big boppers to beef-up their pack with Storm hulk Siosaia Vave and British giant Ryan Bailey appearing on Brisbane's radar.

 

Bailey, who has Jamaican heritage, is one of UK Super League's most accomplished forwards. The 29-year-old monster tips the scales at 107kg and has intimated his desire to test himself in the NRL next season after winning six premierships since his debut for Leeds in 2002.

Broncos operations chief Andrew Gee declined to comment but confirmed the club had spoken to Vave's manager Gavin Orr. Bailey appears a contingency plan, although English forwards have increasing pedigree in the NRL following the successful transitions made by Adrian Morley, Gareth Ellis and Souths enforcers Sam and George Burgess.

A veteran of 213 Super League games, Bailey's size and experience could be an asset for a Broncos club still nurturing rising forwards Dunamis Lui, Jarrod Wallace and David Hala.

"Ryan has been in the Super League a long time, he's ready to come to the NRL," said Orr, whose brother Chris manages the British hardman.

"Brett Delaney (former Titans centre) is one of our clients over there and he has a massive wrap on Bailey.

"He believes Bailey can be better than some of the other British forwards who have come out here.

"At the moment, he has just got his head around the idea of leaving England. He is used to a certain lifestyle over there so if he's happy with a package here he will make the move. There's a number of clubs interested in him."

Why the massive interest in Bailey though? Surely clubs would be looking at Crabtree, Hill, Amor, and Kopzack? They are much better players.

I hope he gets the chance and makes a real go of it.

He is a great player. He does the job fantastically.

 

He should be in the England team for the world cup.

Perhaps Crabtree et al have not expressed an interest in going to the NRL. Perhaps they don't have the same agent as Bailey.


I imagine that, if they explicitly made themselves available, the NRL would show an interest in - at least - Britain's best twenty forwards. Striking a deal to suit both parties would, I guess, be the potential stumbling block - not the players' talent levels.

I broke this news on Southstander 2 weeks ago. An English club offered him a contract (not Leeds) and he turned it down because there was a higher offer on the table from the NRL.

I would love to see Bailey have a go at the NRL.

Bailey taking on Gallen, Watmough and company.
I think he would be a crowd favourite. (for awhile)

I hope he gets his gig but let's not be kidded by the lyrical waxing about his ability!

With all the troubles re players misbehaving and being stupid in Aus, and the sin binning for punching, he's a shoe in surely

 

Have you seen his and Delaney's new t-shirts? Can't knock em for having a money spinning idea, but more urban dictionary than classy
