The news that Kiwi international Kieran Foran has been cleared to return to the NRL sees the Warriors firming as a top four chance in 2017.

Forans life seemed to go off the rails last year after a season ending shoulder injury but the news that he’s been cleared to resume playing at Round 3 is a good sing for both the player and club.

Australian coach Mal Meninga (pictured) says the addition of Foran to a Warriors side that already features a host of New Zealand stars, makes the club real contenders come finals time.
