    I dont know his health situation.. but we are far better off having Foran in our team than not..

    He maybe on a bit of cash, but i wouldnt relase him early unless we have a.replacement thats just as good or better..

    We don't gain anything in releasing Foran from the last year of his contract, he's going be good for everyone in the squad and not just the younger guys coming through. A fit Foran is still by far the best option we have at this club.

    Coaching staff did try to put him on the exercise bike at halftime but he asked why the bike wasn't on the stand and was pointed down the hallway pointing to outside the stadium.

    Hopefully stays injury free and plays the rest of his contract without missing a game! We need him to finish top 4 next season. Bring on 2020!

    I care because Foran has more class in his little finger than Wakeham and Lewis will ever have

    Undoubtedly the best 5/8 in the game. However he seems fragile sometimes.
    I think he should be started from the bench with Cogger starting.
    This would mean he can cut loose against tiring players.

    The humidity completely got him in Townsville.

    Vs Brisbane he was key, many times he played both sides and was first receiver

    You sure are underestimating young Wakeham.

    if Foz sees as much ball as any of our forwards do in the strike zone, we swill score an abundance of points next year

    I think he’s still carrying injuries but forcing himself to play. He was actually very strong in the second half against Souths thou.

    Class player but body is letting him down. We could Definately do better with his money but who do you buy? Halves are a rarity these days

    Ultimate competitor no doubt and I rate him highly, always have. Always thought he was the true man behind Manly's early form and not giraffe neck. That's history now though.

    2018 played 12 games, won 3 and lost 9 = 25%
    2019 played 14 games, won 6 and lost 8 = 43%

    At a cost of atleast 1 million a season my intelligence cannot justify that. He has recently said that he thinks his best ahead of him and wants to keep going. Personally I think he's kidding himself. By some miracle and he last's until Nov 1st next year without missing a single game I would consider a heavily reduced contract but can't help but think we need to move on for the future. Maybe a reduced contract and #14 jersey if we can sign a huge prospect?

    I thought his side of the field looked really dangerous when the ball went that way...
