    It's been 4 months since this guy got injured
    We have heard nothing from the nrl,nothing from the club,the season begins in just under 8 weeks,is it to hard for the club to keep us informed,we desperately need an outside back,but all we have signed are forwards,if they are going with our local juniors fine,some form of communication,would be good don't u think,any wonder we are sitting last of 16 clubs in the membership stakes.,with communication like this is it any wonder.

    iv been trying to get info from the club via emails n phone calls about junior rep trials - NOTHING - not a reply, nothing. Extremely disappointing - promised much delivered little in the communication side of things.

    I don't know much about this stuff, but did Raiders not receive compensation for their cap in a similar scenario for Rapana?

    He needs to be thrown out ASAP. He will offer nothing except more injuries and more instability for our first grade team due to players having to come in and out when he's injured.

    At what point do the NRL step in is what I am wondering.. I don't want to see our game become soft.. but they harp on about head injuries and long term effects... Kieran is busted and only gets even more busted every time he returns... might not be head injuries but he is certainly going to have long term medical issues

    We aren’t getting anymore then the $350k and there’s no decent options to use that $350k on. I don’t think there’s anything to be waiting for?

    I heard the Dogs have opted for a hand rail to be installed around the perimeter of the field at Bankwest instead to make it easier for him to get back into the sheds after games. Should see him back out there as early as April.

    Foran IMO spoke out of turn when he shouldn't have and if I'm the club I would have ripped him a new one. He should never have said anything about coming back early (as if he fukin knows anyway). Would have been open and shut had kept his gob closed I reckon. Now we don't have him, the 350k is dragging out and no $$$ for a replacement player. Sooner the c*nt is cut loose the better!

    What Foran said wouldn’t mean a thing. It would all go off medical reports.

    Foran still wants to play, so medically retiring him isn't an option as he will not agree, so 0 compensation for us!
    End of!

    Means nothing.

    Canberra received compo for Hodgson when he tore his ACL, and came back midway through the following season.

    foran is 100% a liability, he is not an asset in any way, once his contract is up get rid of him
