Bailey in doubt for Sunday

St George Illawarra prop Luke Bailey is in doubt for Sunday's National Rugby League game against South Sydney with a back injury. Bailey has been troubled by a back problem since the Dragons' win over Cronulla in round eight.

The NSW prop pulled up sore after training today and coach Nathan Brown will make a decision on the morning of the match.

If Bailey is ruled out, Ian Donnelly is expected to go into the St George Illawarra starting side, with either Chris Leikvoll or Ashton Sims likely to be drafted into the 17-man squad for the game at the S-C-G.
