David Bailey is a former rugby league player. His position of preference was in the Centres although he also played at Five Eighth. He is the son of New Zealand international Roger Bailey.[1]


Early years

Bailey was a Te Atatu Roosters junior and played for them in the Auckland competition. Bailey also represented Ponsonby.[2] He made his debut for Auckland in 1991 and represented the New Zealand Māori side at the 1992 Pacific Cup.[1][3]

In the early-nineties he traveled to England and played for the Rochdale Hornets, before returning to New Zealand for the 1994 Lion Red Cup. He played in 17 matches for the Waitakere City Raiders that year, scoring 84 points.[4] At the end of the season he was signed by the Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.

In 1996 he returned to New Zealand, playing again for the Waitakere City Raiders in the Lion Red Cup. He was part of the side that lost the 1996 Grand Final, although he did score a try in that match.

He was an Auckland representative from 1992-1996.


Bailey joined the Auckland Warriors in 1997 and was expected to push hard for a first grade center berth.[5] Despite this he only played three games in first grade that year, starting one at centre.

Later years

In 2001 Bailey played for the Glenora Bears in the Bartercard Cup.[6]

Bailey is now involved with the Ponsonby Ponies, a club that plays in the Auckland Rugby League.[7]
