Luke Bailey sidelined for up to six weeks

Gold Coast Titans prop Luke Bailey has been ruled out for up to six weeks following a broken arm suffered in his team's 32-12 victory over the Gold Coast Raiders last Saturday.

After initially laughing off the injury as an 'A-Grade bruise', Bailey was shocked to learn that he had suffered a crack in his lower arm.

The injury is a body blow to the Titans, currently sharing top spot on the NRL ladder, and will almost certainly cost Bailey any chance of NSW and Australian representative selection.
