Ryan Bailey joins Hull Kingston Rovers

Leeds Rhinos forward Ryan Bailey completes his move to Hull KR.

Hull Kingston Rovers have completed the signing of Leeds Rhinos forward Ryan Bailey on a two-year deal.

The 30-year-old, who had 12 months remaining on his contract at Headingley Carnegie, had been linked with a string of NRL clubs.

"I've achieved a lot of things at Leeds over a 14-year period but I'm ready for a new challenge at Hull KR," Bailey told Hull's official website.

"It was a difficult decision to leave Leeds, I was born in the city and I've won some great finals with the club but now I want to bring some of that experience to Rovers. It's going to be a big challenge but I'm looking forward to it and I'll be meeting it head on.

"The fans are really passionate and hopefully we can breed a winning culture and start getting to finals. We've got some really ambitious players who want to win things here at Hull KR and hopefully I can add to that and bring a bit of grunt up front."

Bailey, a former England and Great Britain international, won six Grand Finals, three World Club Challenge titles and one Challenge Cup during his time with Leeds.
