The Gold Coast Titans have announced the signing of Kieran Foran who has penned a two-year deal from the start of the 2023 NRL campaign.
The Titans are priced at 6/1 to make the top eight this season but they are looking ahead to the future also and are delighted to have got the experienced Foran on board.
The Titans are struggling in the halves right now and in an ideal world coach Justin Holbrook would love to be able to put Foran straight in to his side.
However the 31-year-old will see out the season with Manly Sea Eagles before making the switch. And Holbrook is delighted with that.
“Kieran brings a wealth of experience to our squad and this will be invaluable for not just the halves, but the whole team,” Holbrook said. “He is a world class player who has played in big matches and he will help bring along the young halves in our squad, as well as provide immediate impact on the field from next year.
“We know we have some great Gold Coast juniors coming through and Kieran will support that transition over the coming seasons.”
Foran has penned a two-year deal worth a reported $800,000. And although he is looking forward to his move, he is also sad to be leaving Manly.
“I spoke to all the boys in the sheds after the game and I got pretty emotional telling them I was going,” Foran said. “Manly have been brilliant. I honestly can’t say a bad word about them.”
