Losing depth for your side is not something that any club wants to deal with, but the Manly Sea Eagles will find themselves in that predicament, with the club confirming that both Liam Foran and Vic Mauro, will be joining English Super League side, the Salford City Reds on 3-year deals.
Mauro, who is regarded a hard-nosed forward that gives 100% every game, played in 47 games for the club since 2007 – Foran made his debut in 2011, and filled in for the club when brother Kieran Foran or Manly halfback Daly Cherry-Evans were injured.
Whilst those at the club will miss both Mauro and Foran, Manly coach Geoff Toovey believes that the two will be a big success in England for Salford.
We’re sad to see them go, but it’s a great opportunity for the boys in a fantastic competition,” said Toovey.
“Vic’s a local junior and a great ambassador for our junior league. He’s come right through our junior representative system, from North Curl Curl Knights to winning an NRL grand final, and now he’s off to ply his trade overseas.”
“Liam showed off his ability on the big stage last season and he’s sure to impress in the Super League.
“I wish both of them the best of luck and look forward to seeing them in action for Salford City.”
