    Foran has star written all over him i wouldn't be surprised if most clubs will go hard for his signature (back off Rorter ****s) let's hope it's Manly he re-signs for.

    The good thing for us is that the roosters have signed Carney for 4 years as their 5/8 so unlikely that foran will want to go there.

    Yep and pierce just resigned and BA has a couple of years to run on his contract. It would be a really bad move for him to go there and play behind that pack also. At least @ manly he only has Bailey in front of him who could easily move to lock or the second row and will probabley need to with hall, cuthbo and JWH leaving the club next year.

    Wouldn't Pearce resigning open up an opportunity for him?

    What advice did Johns give Foran to "calm him"?  "Take cocaine like me"?

    That would have far from a calming effect

    I can just see Des sitting down with the young kid, and telling him his plan and Kieran sitting there with respect for what Des is telling him and that being enough to make him stay

    It may be fantasy land stuff, but Des is so damn loyal to his blokes, he backs them to the bitter end, and if he sits down and has an honest chat with them I bet that word would carry some weight with the players

    He'll stay.  He looks like a natural fit with the team.  What is it with this John's guy.  An admitted drug taker all his senior playing days and he still rates.  Can't figure that one.  Maybe Bird can have a word with some of the forwards.  As if.

    You'd think so but they love mediocrity over there @ the roosters and they won’t drop Pearce which or Carney next year as there half’s combo - and if one of them was to get hurt BA would just move from lock to 5/8 I would presume – I can’t see them spending the money on him.

    Just because he has taken drugs doesnt mean his football advice isnt sound. He was the best halfback the game has seen.
