Bailey banned


3rd September 2013

Leeds prop Ryan Bailey will miss the Rhinos' final game of the regular Super League season, against Wigan Warriors on Thursday, after being handed a one-match ban.

Bailey was also given a £300 fine by the Rugby Football League's disciplinary committee for punching during his side's 20-12 win over Catalan Dragons.

Bailey, who was making his return against the Dragons from a 12-week absence with a hand injury, will be free to play in the opening round of the play-offs at Warrington Wolves or Huddersfield Giants.

His absence for the trip to the DW Stadium could be offset by the long-awaited return of forwards Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Brett Delaney.

Hooker Rob Burrow is also set to return after missing the win over Catalan with a back injury.
