FORMER Warrington Wolves forward Ryan Bailey has joined Championship club Featherstone on a six-week trial.

The 34-year-old prop, who spent the 2016 campaign with The Wire, is a free agent after leaving Leigh towards the end of the 2018 season.

Rovers, who are without a coach following the sudden departure of John Duffy, say ex-England international Bailey will be offered a contract for 2019 if he impresses during his trial period.

Bailey will link up former Leeds team-mates Jordan Tansey, who is also having trials at the club, and Brett Delaney, who has joined Featherstone on a two-year deal.

"I loved playing with him" Bailey said of Delaney. "It's been four years since we played together, but he's one of my closest friends.

"Jordan Tansey, I came through the academy at Leeds with him, so It would be special to spend my career at Featherstone with two good friends."

Six-time Grand Final winner Bailey played in both the Challenge Cup Final and Super League Grand Final during his season with Wolves.
