Bailey confronts devastating news

iSelect Titans retiring prop Luke Bailey has been hit with the devastating news that he has been ruled out of his planned farewell match for the Titans against the Canterbury Bulldogs on Sunday at Cbus Super Stadium.

After discussing the results of scans on his neck with a specialist today it was decided Bailey would not play as there was a risk of long term damage if he suffered a similar injury.

Bailey had suffered recurrence of previous disc injury in the match against his former club St George Illawarra – his 150th game for the Titans - and missed last Sunday’s Warriors clash.
