    Liam Foran escaped a scary situation during a trip to Shanghai.

    MANLY NRL utility Liam Foran has been held up at knife point in Shanghai during an end-of-season trip.

    Foran, a promising playmaker and brother of New Zealand international Kieran, arrives back for the first day of Sea Eagles' pre-season training this morning with one of the more frightening stories to tell teammates from their eight-week holiday.

    Foran told club officials he was held up at knife point after taking a wrong turn and getting lost in the city of 23 million - the most populated city in the world.

    A Sea Eagles spokeswoman said this morning Foran had already moved on from the incident, telling the club it "was not a big deal".

    The spokeswoman said Foran had some money taken from him, but was not hurt from the attack.

    It remains unclear if Foran was travelling with Manly teammates.

    It was reported this morning the 24-year-old, who made his NRL debut earlier this year, was abducted during the ordeal, but the club said the incident ended when Foran was threatened and robbed.

    Wolfman also chased the offender but did his knee, Tony Willaims is still turning around to start his chase while George managed to catch up to and arrest a lazy Susan

    Strange world. In rugby league it's the attacker who is 'held up' by the defender, and ordered to retreat 10 metres.

    Been to Shanghai and New York City.
    New York was much more scarier.
    Second scarier place was New Orleans (before Katrina).
    Katrina cleaned up some, I hear.
    Another one is L.A., not just because it smells. It's the hood.

    Really? New York?
    I was drunk and alone, wandering the streets of Manhattan at about 2am and I never felt safer.
    Giuliani did amazing work to get that city to where it is now.
