Manly appear poised to reclaim the
ser vices of Kieran Foran after the Kiwi
superstar indicated he was willing to
turn his back on Parramatta.
Just three weeks after Daly Cherry-
Evans backflipped on his Gold Coast
deal, Foran could also recommit to
Brookvale alongside his halves partner
in another stunning development for the
The Eels are said to have reworked
the original $4.8 million contract Foran
signed with the club three months ago
and hold out hope he will move west
in 2016, however Foran indicated the
significant distrust he now feels toward
Parramatta in a statement to the Nine
Network on Tuesday.
“ I don’t know how it has come to this, I
entered into an agreement three months
ago in good faith and I have never
wavered,” Foran said. “ I have shown the
utmost respect to Parramatta and I’m
not 100% sure this has been shown to
A $1m bail out clause has reportedly
been taken out of the new contract, with
Foran permitted to leave the club if
Brad Arthur is no longer coach. But that
attempt at detente could be too little too
late with Manly moving to secure Foran
with a rearguard action in the same way
they did Cherry-Evans.
Gold Coast, Canterbury and Sydney
Roosters are other possibilities if Foran
decides to look further. Originally Foran
was heavily linked to the Roosters due
to his strong friendship with Mitchell
With James Maloney moving to
Cronulla next season the Roosters do
have an opening alongside Pearce in the
halves. However the NSW playmaker
doesn’t think that will happen.
“ I don’t know how we are going to
afford Kieran,” Pearce joked to AAP.
“ I’m sure it is going to be a hot topic.
But I haven’t spoken to him about it. He
is obviously a good mate of mine but I
don’t think that situation will arise.”
Cronulla have signed a third generation
Rogers, with Jack, son of Mat and
grandson of Steve joining the NRL club
in their U20s programme.
Jack, 19, joined the club last week,
after the Sharks beat off interest from
Super Rugby’s Q ueensland Reds and
NSW Waratahs to secure his signature.
A product of Palm Beach Currumbin
High, Jack is eyeing a career as a fullback.
Footage of him posted on Youtube
shows a running style remarkably similar
to his father and grandfather.

200 games for Cronulla from 1973-82.

The Warriors insist they are keeping
their feet on the ground following
their impressive away win over the
Gold Coast Titans and are determined
to produce another strong showing
against the Canberra Raiders at Mt
Smart Stadium on Saturday night.
Prop Jacob Lillyman and second-
rower Bodene Thompson will celebrate
a double milestone against the Raiders,
with the Queensland State of Origin
front-rower Lillyman making his 200th
NRL appearance, and Kiwis for ward
Thompson will play his 100th first-
Lillyman and New South Wales
second-rower Ryan Hoffman will both
start the game, after coming off the
bench against the Titans, while rookie
utility Tui Lolohea and prop Albert
Vete come back into the side.
Lolohea replaces impressive right-
wing Ken Maumalo, who is out after
suffering an ankle injury against
the Titans, and Vete — 18th man
last weekend — returns in place of
“ We’re not getting carried away with
it. There are a lot of positives to take
out of that (Titans) game but we know
that the contest will be a little stiffer
this week,” Warriors coach Andrew
“ It was probably our first real
80 minute performance where we
controlled play the whole time.
“That came on the back of all the
pressure we built from, one, our middle
units, our forwards, really laying the
platform, and, secondly, our halves
controlling play with their kick-game.”
Lillyman, who made his 10th Origin
appearance for the maroons last week, is
in his seventh season with the Warriors
after joining the club in 2009 following
62 outings for the North Queensland
He will play his 138th match for
the Warriors this week leaving him
on target to top fellow Queenslander

Lillyman goes into the match in
career-best form after carting the
ball 204m from 20 runs when he was
used off the bench in last Saturday ’s
36-14 away win over the Gold Coast
Titans, just four days after featuring
in the second interstate match at the
Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Thompson has played all 14 matches
so far this season since joining the
Warriors from Wests Tigers and
previously the Titans, earning back-
to-back players’ player awards for his
stand-out performances in wins over
Parramatta and Newcastle last month.
“Jake has been a terrific servant for the
Warriors,” McFadden said.
“He has all the qualities we want to
see in our players. He puts in every time
he takes the field and is consistently
among our best. It’s great to see him
reaching the 200-game mark.
“Bodene has been a great acquisition
for the club as we expected he would
be. He works so hard and is adding
more to his game as the season goes on.
Like Jake, he’s so consistent.”
The Warriors are seeking their fifth
straight win against the Raiders.
In 33 clashes between the two sides
they are just behind on the wins ledger
16-17 but have a 10-6 record in 16
matches at home. Heading into this
round the home side is seventh on the
table with 16 points with the Raiders
ninth on 14.
