Six-time Grand Final winner joins Featherstone on trial

Ryan Bailey, the former Leeds and England star, has joined Championship club Featherstone on a six-week trial.

The prop, a six-time Grand Final winner with Leeds, is currently a free agent after leaving Leigh.

But the former Warrington and Toronto ace has linked up with the coachless Rovers, where he will line up alongside former team-mate and new Rovers signing Brett Delaney.

Bailey, who turned 34 earlier this month, will also reunite with Jordan Tansey, another former Leeds team-mate who is also on trial with the club.

Bailey said: “I just want to win them (the supporters) over really, like I do at most clubs.

“Everyone’s got a persona of me, but I just want to win the Featherstone fans over and have a great year.”
