    Sea Eagles hoping Joey can convince Foran to stay Adrian Proszenko
    April 1, 2012

    SUNDAY SIN BIN


    Manly officials have approached Andrew Johns about joining the coaching staff in a move they hope will help them retain Kieran Foran. Their chances of keeping Foran increased after Cooper Cronk re-signed with Melbourne. However, the Bulldogs and the Warriors are still circling. Foran holds Johns in high regard and Sea Eagles powerbrokers are hopeful the Knights legend will come aboard as a halves coach. ''Joey'' already works as a consultant to several NRL clubs as well as the Melbourne Rebels. The Manly coaching staff are also discussing other potential appointments. While no pressure is being placed on Foran, it is hoped he can put pen to paper as soon as this week.

    So in order to keep Foran from going to the warriors or dogs we have to sign a halves coach(who also coaches the warriors and dogs) to convince him not to go............I got on the booze last night but I'm bloody confused.

    Who cares? He has been our halves coach for a while anyway. If it helps signing Foran then its fine.

    I don't think he's been our halves coach recently. Only Dogs, Warriors and one other.

    Yeah, he was last year but now with his ch9 gig he's limited it to only a couple of clubs. Not 100% sure though.

    Considering he lives local it wouldnt be a bad move to offer him a fulltime coaching gig with Manly only. He was the best player ever so im sure he'd do alright at coaching

    No mate none at all, unless you count the fatman's origin win as coach of the Toads.
