Warriors confirm Foran signing

New Zealand Warriors have confirmed the signing of Kieran Foran.

The Kiwi international has signed a one-year contract with the club after leaving Parramatta midway through the season due to personal reasons.

“I’ve been in touch with Kieran regularly this year to offer support as he has dealt with the well-documented challenges he has been facing,” said the club’s managing director Jim Doyle.

“We have worked through the option of coming to Auckland carefully with him. There has been much to consider in creating an environment for Kieran to not only return to football but also to put all the support around him that he needs.

“I’m delighted that following those discussions, Kieran has now decided to join the Vodafone Warriors. The next step is to work alongside the NRL to cover off all requirements to have the contract registered.”
