AFL 2015 Training - St Kilda 271115

Bailey Rice's pre-season has been derailed by a bout of glandular fever

ST KILDA draftee Bailey Rice’s pre-season has been put on hold after a bout of glandular fever.

The father-son pick will spend several weeks resting before working his way back into training.

“Bailey had been feeling a little under the weather recently and subsequent tests revealed he has glandular fever,” St Kilda football manager Jamie Cox told saints.com.au.

“His health and how he responds to a gradual increase in load will determine when he returns to full training." 

Rice was selected at No.49 in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft as a father-son selection.

The 19-year-old nominated the Saints as his choice of club, rather than Carlton. He had the option of going to either as his father Dean played more than the required 100 games at each club to qualify as a father-son pick.
