Give the kid a go sportRugby League04 Feb 09 @ 05:13pm by JASON AVEDISSIAN http://manly-daily.whereilive.com.au/sport/story/give-the-kid-a-go/ NEW Zealand Test selector Darrell Williams believes the time is right to blood Sea Eagles teenage half Kieran Foran on the premiers upcoming World Club Challenge tour of England. With Matt Orford off contract at the end of 2009 and certain to receive strong interest from cashed-up English clubs, Williams is encouraging Manly coach Des Hasler to use Foran as the captainÃ¢Â€Â™s under-study on the two-match tour. At just 18, Foran is yet to play in the NRL, but Williams and ex-Kiwi half Gary Freeman yesterday both backed the kid to get a crack. Ã¢Â€ÂœWhy not,Ã¢Â€Â Williams told The Manly Daily on Wednesday. Ã¢Â€ÂœWhilst the game doesnÃ¢Â€Â™t count towards the premiership, why not give him a go. If you want to experiment, now is the time to do it and see if the young fellow is up to it. Ã¢Â€ÂœKieran is a developing player and he could give some value to Des on their little trip to England.Ã¢Â€Â Freeman said Foran would benefit under Orford should he tour. Ã¢Â€ÂœItÃ¢Â€Â™s a great idea,Ã¢Â€Â the former Tiger said. Ã¢Â€ÂœWhat a great experience to go and play in England under the guidance of Orford.Ã¢Â€Â Hasler is expected to name a squad of 22 to 24 players for the two-match trip to London and Leeds. The squad departs Sydney on Sunday week. The 2008 NRL champions will open with a warm-up game against Harlequins in London, before taking on English Super League premiers Leeds in the World Club Challenge clash at Ellan Road on March 1. Foran played in the Sea Eagles Toyota Cup campaign last season and is viewed as a long-term project for the club. Williams also hinted the Auckland-born youngster could be touted as a future New Zealand international. Ã¢Â€ÂœHeÃ¢Â€Â™s got some ability,Ã¢Â€Â the 1987 Manly premiership-winning centre. Ã¢Â€ÂœHeÃ¢Â€Â™s starting to knock on the door and is someone IÃ¢Â€Â™ve been keeping an eye on as far as the Kiwis go. Ã¢Â€ÂœWeÃ¢Â€Â™ve been weak in the halves position with Benji Marshall injured a lot, so IÃ¢Â€Â™ve taken an interest in Kieran.Ã¢Â€Â Hasler will announce his squad on Friday, February 13.
