Bailey has his eye on Wembley

After winning the Super League Grand Final with Wigan, new Salford signing Phil Bailey has his eyes on a Wembley date in August.

Bailey, 30, has joined the Reds revolution following four years at the DW Stadium, and with a host of new faces joining him at The Willows, Shaun McRae’s team are fancied to challenge for a play-off spot.

The Australian back-rower said: “The top eight is a definite goal. We want to leave to the willows on a good note and head into the new stadium as a semi final team.

“The Challenge Cup is fantastic. It’s one of those competitions where if you string four games together you’re walking out at Wembley. It doesn’t matter how you’re doing in the Super League competition, that’s the big mystery about the challenge cup. Anyone can get there that’s what’s exciting.”

Born in New South Wales, Bailey racked up more than 100 appearances in the NRL for Manly, Northern Eagles and Cronulla before moving to the UK.
