Kieran Foran is being strongly linked with a return to the Sea Eagles, but Manly have moved quickly to deny suggestions they will be given outside help to bring him back to the northern beaches.

The Sea Eagles have had to fend off suggestions that the passing of much-loved supporter Brenda Duchen would result in Foran’s homecoming being fast-tracked. Duchen was a huge Foran fan and backed him as a sponsor when he was at the club from 2009-15.


Manly refused to comment on my information that Duchen’s family was about to make a donation to their foundation. They say those dealings are confidential, but made it clear any donation would not carry a caveat that Foran must be signed.
‘‘First of all, I want to say that Brenda was a hugely respected and loved person at our club and we would like to honour her in an appropriate way,’’ Manly chief executive Stephen Humphreys said.

‘‘What transpires between her family and the club is confidential. We do not comment on who donates what to our foundation. That’s between the individual and the club. What I will say is that there is no link between anything that may happen and any player being signed by our club. That can’t happen.’’
Duchen was a highly respected figure in the legal fraternity. She had close relationships with Foran, Api Koroisau and Dylan Walker.
Foran this week paid tribute to her on Instagram.
‘‘I want her family to know how much I respect her,’’ he said. ‘‘We always talked about me going back to Manly and she would ask me all the time if I could make it happen. Obviously if things fell into place and I ended up there again she would be in my thoughts every day I was there. I know it’s what she wanted and of course the move has appeal to me. I don’t know if it’s possible. It would be a lovely way for me to honour her memory and her contribution to my life.’’
The pending departure of Addin Fonua-Blake will free up room in the Sea Eagles’ salary cap for Foran to finish up at Manly, but a deal is yet to be struck.

I can't feel it buddy, no matter how hard you WANT it. It is the wrong direction and would not fix any of the problems we have.
Our problems are FAR deeper than Foran at 6...for however many games he would manage playing.
Oh its happening Mr Eagle!
Brace yourself
Not the wrong direction on a 1 year deal on the cheap. He would be good for the younger kids, he can run a team get repeat sets and would strike up a crazy combination with walker and turbo... for 300k he is an absolute bargin. It'll probably be announced shortly after season's end. ;)

Ps I don't care if it doesn't happen. Either way im good. We have the Schu, but who plays if he goes down? Croker? (Insert spew emoji)

just sign him for base salary - $105,000 (i think) & match payments for every game he completes.
i.e. if he played 20 games at say $15,000/game he gets an extra $300,000.
if he only finishes 5 games then he gets an extra $75,000.
if by some miracle managed to play 20 games, with his ability & influence on others we'd be back where we belong, & only paying him just over $400,000 for the season wouldn't be too bad in my eyes

Feels more and more like he's going to end up back here. Some are going to hate it, some are going to love it. He was one of my absolute favourite players back in the day, but I'd prefer it if we were looking forwards as a club rather than backwards. Still, I think he does have some footy left in him and will have something to offer.

But really, given how our luck seems to be running lately, chances are he'll come back, be great for a game or two, then suffer a career-ending injury (probably in a game in which three other players pick up injuries that put them out for the season). We won't be able to medically retire him and we'll be stuck with his salary for the next three years.

That scenario seems way more likely than the reunited Foz, Cherry and Dessie show leading us to another premiership.

Foran didn’t seem so interested in her feelings when he left Manly!.......but now that no club wants him he wants to honour her wishes!
