Personally I'm against signing Foran

That said if we were to pick him up Id get behind the team with him in it and green frame it by saying.

  • He'd be cheap
  • He is still very good when he plays
  • Even if he plays 50% of games it is a good way to ease Schuster in.
  • Will allow Walker to go back to centre

Id probably have Schuster in the 15/Jetski role. Play some edge backrow but can cover 5/8 and centre

Thats if we sign Foran....which I'm still against
Hope nope, started well. Now they just blow them too inconsistent. Haven't liked it. Has not improved the game, just made it more confusing
im still on the fence with the 6 again.As you said,it’s too inconsistent and most of the time you have no idea why they ruled them.But on the other hand,the quick decision and continuity of play,limits the amount of time the commentary has to whinge about the ruling.Although it didn’t stop CH9 last night

As I’ve said many times , and sadly so , Foran is an accident waiting to happen.

Look back over the last 5 years , what has he played , 30% of games.

So we pay him say $350k for the year , and he plays what.....6 games maybe.

It’s a massive no from me and I’ll be bitterly disappointed if Des signs him stopping the development of our promising juniors.
Not sure how signing Foran stops the development of juniors, I would have thought it would enhance it having someone of the like of Foran to learn from ?
And they would still get 70% game time based on your 30%estimate of games played @:D

Yes I made that comment at the end but it dropped off when I posted. Bloody iPhone It won’t add the smiley faces too. I normally use my pc or laptop when I’m on silvertails but I’m in hospital at the moment

I was one of those that had the feeling I would not urinate on him if he was struck by lightning. Maybe I have mellowed. If we could get him at a good price he would not have to play 25 games a season to be value. Still a quality player.
If Peters does not want him there, thats good enough for me, sign him.
