Kieran Foran, one of the favourite sons of the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, is returning ‘home’ in 2021.
The Sea Eagles are pleased to announce the signing of Foran on a one-year-deal from next season.
The 30-year-old made his NRL debut for the Sea Eagles in 2009 and went on to play 147 games for the Club before leaving Manly at the end of the 2015 season. He has since played 213 NRL games.
Foran played five-eighth in the 2011 Sea Eagles premiership winning team where he formed a lethal halves combination with current Manly captain Daly Cherry-Evans.
Sea Eagles Coach Des Hasler is extremely happy to secure the services of Foran.
“Kieran has done it all in the game from winning premierships to playing Test football for New Zealand. He has played more than 200 NRL games so his experience is well documented,’’ Hasler said.
“His knowledge of the game will be invaluable to all players in our squad.”
Foran said he was looking forward to returning to the Northern Beaches to continue his career under Hasler.
“I am very excited about the opportunity to return to the Sea Eagles, a club that I hold close to my heart and have some great memories of,’’ Foran said.
“I’m looking forward to playing under Des once more as well as being part of a very talented playing squad at Manly. I can’t wait to pull on the maroon and white jersey again.”
