Bailey Dale is a medium size forward that has clean hands and a high football IQ. Selected by the Western Bulldogs with the 45th pick in the 2014 AFL Draft, Dale made his debut in round 7 against Fremantle and went on to play 10 games in his debut year.
Dale couldn’t quite solidify his spot in the Bulldogs best 22 managing just four games in the 2016 due to strong competition for spots in the Bulldogs premiership winning year. A strong 2017 pre-season saw Dale manage his best season to date playing 16 games and kicking 17 goals across half forward.
Dale continued on his form in 2018 playing the first 10 games of the year before a foot injury ended his AFL season. Having overcome the injury Dale will be looking to return back to his best in 2019.
