TWO convicted criminals who served nine months’ detention in England have been named in the Great Britain Tri-Nations rugby league squad.
Prop Ryan Bailey and winger Chev Walker – both members of the Leeds side that defeated Bradford 16-8 in the Super League grand final, were named today in coach Brian Noble’s 24-man squad.
Bailey, 19, and Walker, 20, were sent to jail for violent disorder after an incident outside a Leeds nightclub last year.

The pair were prevented from playing against the Kangaroos last October.
Bailey, a rugged prop without any teeth, may have to wear an electronic tag during the Kangaroos match.
Thanks to Joe E. for this one. Nice to know there aren’t any sore feelings towards the jailbirds.
