Kieran Foran

It was a case of will he, or will he not – but the Manly Sea Eagles have achieved their ultimate goal in the ongoing tussle with the Canterbury Bulldogs, in re-signing five-eighth Kieran Foran until the end of the 2015 season.

With former Manly coach Des Hasler keen to secure the services of Foran, the NZ representative made the decision to stay with Manly, and continue his partnership with current halfback, Daly Cherry-Evans.

For Foran, it was all about continuing his career at the club that first gave him his start.

“This has been the toughest decision of my life, but I love playing with my mates and playing with a club that has such a great culture and strong values.”

“I’d like to thank everyone for their patience during this process.”

Although he helped guide the Sea Eagles to the premiership in 2011, Manly coach Geoff Toovey believes that Foran has even greater heights to scale.

Kieran has a fantastic future at this great club.”

“Despite enormous outside pressure, he’s handled this process very professionally and it’s a great reflection of the club’s spirit, culture and camaraderie that he has decided to stay.”

David Perry, the Chief Operating Officer at the Manly club was also full of praise for Foran re-signing, saying that it was a huge boost for both the player and the club.

“Kieran is an important part of the Sea Eagles’ future and his combination with Daly is one of the best in the game.

“We’ve always wanted to secure him for the long-term and we’re glad he’s decided to stay.”
