    PARRAMATTA’S champion halfback and captain Kieran Foran has been stood down from football indefinitely to deal with personal issues.

    The Daily Telegraph can reveal the Eels superstar has been in hospital this week because of major concerns about his health and wellbeing.

    It is understood he has been emotionally struggling to cope with a relationship breakdown from his long-time partner, who gave birth to their second child recently.

    He has been missing from training all week.

    NRL boss Todd Greenberg has been informed of Foran’s situation and has offered to provide any support the NRL can.

    “The Parramatta Eels have granted Kieran Foran an indefinite leave of absence to seek the best possible medical treatment regarding a personal matter,” the Eels said in a statement on Thursday night.

    “The club will be making no further comment and request that the media respect Kieran’s privacy at this time.”

    The early prognosis is that the Kiwi international will miss at least three games, including the Anzac Test match next weekend in Newcastle while specialists monitor his condition.

    One of the biggest names in the NRL, Foran has been privately trying to cope with the pressure of football, the relationship problems and a third-party sponsorship row with former club Manly.


    He has been fighting to get more than $140,000 allegedly owed from the Sea Eagles.

    He has also been worrying about the prospect of Parramatta losing competition points from the club’s salary cap scandal.

    The Eels will announce that Foran has been ruled out of the blockbuster game against the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium on Friday night.

    Coach Brad Arthur has been a close confidant throughout Foran’s struggles, insisting his health is far more important than football at this stage.

    Foran joined the Eels because of his high regard for the coach.

    Most of his Eels teammates had no idea of how serious his issues were.

    Arthur will finalise his team on Friday morning with either Mitch Cornish or Clint Gutherson the likely replacements.

    Foran, 25, switched from Manly to Parramatta this year in a multi-million dollar deal that made him one of the highest paid players in the history of the game.

    Despite the off-field turmoil he has been the driving force behind the Eels’ best start to a season since 1986, the year the club won its last premiership.

      This may be the strangest 12 mths of rugby league I've ever witnessed. I think we're close to the "Tyson zone" - literally nothing could happen in the game that would completely surprise me at this point.
      Get better Kieran.

            I get no joy out of this.

            Very sad.

                  He'll be right. This is just Parra's way of trying to make me feel like a ***t. It won't work.

                    Whilst I happily wished doom on Parra and Foran, I take no joy from this.

                    To Foran, rediscover what's important.

                    To Parra, eat poop and get another spoon.

                          There's no winners in relationship break downs. Especially with kids involved. Foran was a champ for us for all but a year of his career here and I think he suffered from being the young kid hanging with the cool group. I wish him all the best of luck.

                            That boy has been strange for the last 2 years. He needs to allow life to unfold and not need to control every aspect of it@:cool:

                              When I saw the thread title I thought it was a gee up.
                              He did look stressed in the presser with the Dalai last week.
                              If he's in trouble with mental health issues I seriously hope he overcomes it.
                              I'm also kind of curious at the lack of information and wonder if something that has been frowned upon by the integrity committee has gone on?

                                I don't buy that he is worried about 140k from manly, which would be chump change to him, nor the concern about parra losing points, which has more likely been slipped in by eel management to soften the nrl. I do think Kieran has some deep seated personal issues though - looks to me like a lost soul.

                                  Shame, regardless of how he left the club I hope it is nothing serious. He is a great player and it is a shame to see him having a break from the game.
