The Kangaroos have confirmed that father-son prospect Bailey Scott will make his debut for the club in Sunday’s clash against the Dockers.
Like father, like son.
Bailey Scott will debut this weekend, 23 years on from when his father, Robert, played in the 1996 premiership.

The 18-year old was picked up in last year’s draft with the No. 49 pick overall and has been touted at the ‘steal of the draft’ by Brownlow Medallist Gerard Healy earlier in the week.
“Bailey Scott has come in and absolutely dominated for North Melbourne in the two JLT matches,” Healy told Fox Footy.
“He won it on the inside, he won it on the outside. He tackled ferociously, and kicked goals.”
Scott’s dad, Robert, played 113 games and won a premiership with the club in his second season.
