London Scottish announced the arrival of Canadian international Baillie for the 2017/18 season.

The second-row/flanker trialled with Saracens back in January 2017 after impressing their selectors in Canadian colours during the November tests. However, after dislocating his shoulder on the field in Saracens colours in the LV Cup he missed the opportunity to pick up a long-term contract.

A standout performer for Canada in 2016, his performances during the November and June tests saw Kyle nominated for the Canada player of the year, eventually losing out to another ex London Scottish player and current Newcastle Falcon, Evan Olmstead.

Baillie is known for his high work rate in defence and willingness to carry the ball at pace. A natural at both lock and blindside, he is a threat at the set piece, offering himself as an option at line-out time and a powerful scrummager.

He spent the 2015 season with the Eastern Suburbs Rugby club in Sydney, before a move to join Ohio in the newly formed US PRO Rugby competition saw Kyle excel at lock, scoring two tries in six starts for the club.

Baillie is also an experienced performer for Canada A, featuring in the Americas Rugby Championship, Pacific Nations Cup and Americas Pacific Challenge.

He made his test debut for Canada against the USA in February 2016 and was included in the test squad for the 2019 Nations Cup.

Baillie joined NOLA from RFU Championship side London Scottish in 2019. In his three seasons with the club, the forward played 20 matches, primarily as a lock but also including starts at blindside flanker and No8. For the 2021 year, he was limited to just 8 games due to injury.

In October 2021, he signed a deal with Major League Rugby side Toronto Arrows.
