Kieran Foran has signed with the New Zealand Warriors for the 2017 season.
Warriors boss Jim Doyle broke the news to Warriors members at the club’s annual members forum.
Foran joins Shaun Johnson, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Issac Luke in arguably the strongest spine in the NRL.
“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 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.”
