After playing only three games in the first 17 rounds Dale has since helped push the Dogs into the finals.
“I love playing for this club and it’s a privilege every time I get to pull on the jumper,” Dale told the club website.
“We’ve got a lot of guys in the same age bracket and the banter’s always pretty good, and I just enjoy coming to work every day and being around these boys.”
“I can’t wait to see what the future holds. We’re a young group and we’re playing some good footy at the moment. I love the way we play our footy and I want to be a big part of that going forward.”
Bulldogs list manager Sam Power has praised the 23-year old for an excellent finish to the regular season.
“It’s been pleasing to see him get some continuity back into his football after an injury-affected 2018 to become an important contributor in our forward line,” Power said.
“As a forward, Bailey is strong in the air and at ground level. His work in the forward half and ability to kick goals has been one of the reasons for our increased scoring late in the season.”
