Warriors name Foran for Bulldogs clash

WARRIORS COACH Stephen

Kearney will give five-eighth

Kieran Foran until the last

minute to prove his fitness ahead

of tomorrow’s game against the

Bulldogs at Mt Smart Stadium.

Foran hurt his quad muscle in

the side’s win over the Titans 11

days ago and is showing signs

of improvement. The extra rest

thanks to last weekend’s bye has

helped him have a chance of being

fit to face the side he will play

for in 2018.

Kearney has named the Kiwis

international in the No 6 jumper

in a side that has a familiar look

to it.

The one glaring omission is

centre Solomone Kata, who is

unavailable for the game due to

the death of his brother back in

Tonga.

“Sol has had a tragic event

happen – his brother has passed

away in Tonga,” Kearney told

Radio Sport.

“He will be flying out late

tonight to attend his brother’s

funeral,” Kearney said.

“He was only a young guy and

it was a tragic event – the club’s

best wishes and thoughts are

with Sol and his family.”

Rookie Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad

comes onto the wing with

David Fusitua moving into the

centres to replace Kata.

Kearney refused the temptation

to include the club’s all-time

leading try-scorer Manu Vatuvei,

who is working his way back

from injury. Vatuvei has been

included on an extended bench.

Also named on an extended

bench is prop James Gavet, who

missed the game against the Titans

with a hamstring strain, and

Ata Hingano, who came on to replace

Foran when the five-eighth

got injured.

The Warriors have confirmed

they will not be bringing in

a replacement for the nowdeparted

assistant coach Steve

McNamara, who this week

took up the vacant head

coaching job at the Catalan

Dragons in the United

Kingdom’s Super League.
