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.

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

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)

Whoever wrote that ought to be lauded for their fictional writing, they are right up there with Tolkien and Rowling!

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

I don't need to read it again and I don't care who wrote it or why, the fact remains its a complete work of fiction.

If this is an Agent then he needs to be careful as overselling someone to this degree will ultimately lead to his own lack of future credibility.

Would you care to explain why you think it's a complete work of fiction?

His new agent is also building up his Bash brother's leisure wear brand that he is in partnership with Delaney.Now scoff at all this but its doing very well.His customer's include Wayne Rooney.Bailey is making a success out of the much laughed at "TMFMISL""title

Would be a good move for him I think but also for the NRL. Everybody loves a bad guy and with the controversy that surrounds him he'll quickly become a household name over there.

Be a great move for bailey to test himself in that inviroment and from England poing of view another potential option if he proves himself

No not really!!

If you can't see it then no amount of explanation from me will make a difference.
