Terry Lamb offers Kieran Foran a helping hand

    THE best player to wear the No.6 jersey in Canterbury’s history has vowed to do whatever is needed to help Kieran Foran rekindle his best form.

    Terry Lamb has endorsed Foran as the man to steer the Bulldogs back into finals contention and he wants to lend a hand.

    Already Lamb has come on board as part of the club’s “captain’s circle” — an initiative which will involve Lamb and other Canterbury premiership winning captains including Steve Mortimer, George Peponis, Peter Tunks and Andrew Ryan forming a constant presence at Belmore next year.

    But with favourite son Josh Reynolds now a Tiger, Lamb has backed Foran to star in the same jersey which Lamb wore when he led the side to a premiership in 1995.

    UPDATE: Old school is new at Belmore

    “Kieran is an incredible player,” Lamb said. “He has been a good player for a number of years. He has a few niggling injuries at the moment but he will fit into the club perfectly as long as he trains well.

    “I know he is a good trainer. He can bring so much to the club and can teach some of our halves what to do and what not to do.

    “The kid can play. He didn’t play for New Zealand for nothing. He has a representative player. He has played a lot of football. He knows how to guide a team around with the confidence.”

    Foran was officially unveiled as a Bulldog last week, joining the rest of his teammates in pre-season training.

    Foran was welcomed with a picture of Lamb and Lamb’s playing statistics inside his locker room at Belmore.

    It is part of a change of Bulldogs culture where all players’ lockers are aligned with greats of the club, with Foran a natural fit to shadow Lamb’s past deeds.

    Lamb has already made a beeline for the club’s high-profile signing and has tabled an open offer to Foran.

    “I was here (the other) week with him and spent half an hour with him,” Lamb said. “Chatting to him about his family and where he is living. Everything is positive with him.

    “If he asks for (my help) I’m happy to jump in. I don’t want to do it if they don’t want me. If (coach) Dean (Pay) asks me to have a chat with them I will.”

    I absolutely love Terry Lamb, my favourite Bulldog of all time, hopefully some of his attributes rub off on Foran.

    I'm really enjoying the amount of goodwill around the club at the moment, it really does seems like the family club again.

    How refreshing to see former club greats becoming involved with the current players, motivation and confidence is in my opinion far more important than on field Structures and coaching. Us fans should thank whoever was responsible for bringing all the past premiership winning Captains back.
    Baa you have proven once again what a great person your are, and how great you have been for our club by offering to give Foran whatever help he want's.
    What I believe we need most after the disaster of the last few years is more people like Baa who can instill our club's culture on our current players and help them with their individual skills.

    Looks like Lamb has beaten Eastwood to the food table on numerous occasions.

    Terry Lamb encapsulates what the D.O.W. are all about. He is the DNA / Blueprint for a return to the old school days.... They bled blue and white back then. I'm so fricking excited about 2018... The futures so bright I gotta wear shades!!!

    I think we are the perfect club (now) to get Forans life back on track.

    Have you see George Rose recently? Faaaarrrrk .. he looks like he ate the Storm team bus when he left.

    With a history of personal issues and club swapping he will need a bit of someone to talk to when he is ready, good on someone willing to be there.
