This has to mean we release crocker, there no point in wasting a top 30 spot or another dollar on him. Hopefully some sl team wants his services.
Maybe a bush footy job for croker he bloody horrible

Got to admit I would love Turbo's hourly rate playing NRL. Hopefully his body stabilizes and can provide long term viability. If he gets injured long term next year he needs a medical release?

With Foran, great footballer, but has he got over or recovered from his off field issues. I would hope 2 of his 3 issues is resolved. Life brings circumstances that we learn from or grow from, or move on from. He is with us now, wish him well, hope in the twilight of his career he can add value, support to the young ones, and becomes a inspiration to the team.

I'm sure I read somewhere Foz also stated that the Bulldogs was the best team he's ever played with. Now he's looking forward to being part of a talented playing squad.

One thing Foran does bring is extreme resilience and leadership. He is clearly a better leader than DCE, who has shown mental weakness of late.

Look at some of Forans posts on instagram. He clearly does care & works hard. WIll be good for the culture, to have someone other than DCE to look up to for the younger guys (DCE is probably a bit limited socially it seems from everything thats happened)

AFB out & Foran in, obviously not nearly a comparison on field these days but for the club culture, I'm sure its a good thing.

Keep in mind how many of the kids at the club were 12 year olds watching foran carve up for manly when we won the comp.

I'm sure Fainu (and the brothers), schuster etc. even the trbojevic's would think its great to play with a manly legend from the GF days.

All this talk about Foran playing hooker. I highly doubt that will happen on a regular basis. The work-rate for him to do that is not realistic. But hey, what the hell do I know...I was sure he would not be back in our jersey.

Foran at 9 is still a better option than Croker or Cust mainly due to Foran having a footy IQ above the number of 2.
Cust could be OK from dummy half if his main role is nothing more than good service. Remember, before being moved to 5/8 in the U/20's in 2017, Cade Cust was a junior hooker.

Croker proved smart at dummy half this year (smarter than Levi, though admittedly that wasn't hard), he just suffered from poor execution.

Though I do agree that Foran would being smarts to the position that neither possess.

All depends on who is paying him at the time.

According to Jake, he through Chez under the bus saying that Chez had spoken to Foran about coming back? Chez laughed it off? Both reckon Foran is a better 6 than 9? Lets see how this unfolds

But is Foran better at 6 than Schuster? That's the real issue. 7 years back probably, but only through experience. Today, I'd doubt it.

19. Foran’s signature for the Sea Eagles is great theatre. If he’s been signed to play nine though I simply can’t see that working. Been wrong before though. Just saying that Nathan Peats is still unsigned …
