2010[edit]

Following Matt Orford's departure before the start of the 2010 Season, Foran started at halfback in Manly's round 1 22-26 loss to the Wests Tigers at ANZ Stadium.[15] The following week, Foran played at five-eighth in Manly's 20-24 loss at Parramatta Stadium.[16] After a strong start to the 2010 NRL season for the Sea Eagles, Foran was rewarded with selection at halfback for New Zealand in the 2010 Anzac Test, which was played at Melbourne's new AAMI Park. Despite the 8-12 loss, Foran produced a strong performance and was being heavily considered as New Zealand's halfback for the 2010 Four Nations.[17] However, Foran picked-up a shoulder injury near the end of the NRL season which required him to have surgery and ruled him out for the entire tournament.[18] During the season, Foran played in 23 matches and scored 4 tries for the Sea Eagles.

2011[edit]

Foran playing for Manly in 2011

Following the early rounds of the 2011 NRL season, Foran was rewarded with selection at halfback inside of Benji Marshall at five-eighth for the annual Anzac test match against Australia at the Gold Coast's Cbus Super Stadium.[19] In the game, he set up the final try of the game to team-mate Lance Hohaia, however Australia won the game 20-10.[20] Heading into round 17 of the season, Foran was trailing North Queensland Cowboys captain Johnathan Thurston by six votes when voting for the Dally M Medal went behind closed doors.[21] But soon after, Thurston suffered a knee injury in the third State of Origin game and during his absence Foran produced some man-of-the-match awards to seemingly catch up.[citation needed] Foran was suspended following his role in the brawl against Melbourne in round 25 in Manly's 18-4 win at Brookvale Oval, ruling him ineligible for that year's medal.[22][23] After Foran's one match suspension, he helped taking Manly to the 2011 NRL grand final.[citation needed] On 2 October 2011, Foran played five-eighth in the Sea Eagles' 24-10 win over the New Zealand Warriors in the grand final in front of 81,988 at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney. Kieran was unlucky not to be among Manly's try scorers on the day after he knocked on while scoring a try.[24] Foran finished the Sea Eagles successful season with him playing in 26 matches and scoring 8 tries. After the 2011 grand final victory, Foran was selected in the New Zealand Kiwis' squad for the trans-Tasman test game against Australia and the 2011 Four Nations tournament.[25] Team-mate, halves-partner, and Kiwis captain, Benji Marshall, also tipped Foran to be a key figure for the Kiwis' Four Nations campaign.[26] Foran featured in the trans-Tasman test against Australia in the Kiwis 42-6 loss,[27] and every game of the Kiwis' regular Four Nations tournament rounds, where the Kiwis were knocked out of the tournament by England in the final round losing 28-6 at KC Stadium.[28]

2012[edit]

Foran travelled to England with the Sea Eagles for the 2012 World Club Challenge match against 2011 Super League Champions Leeds Rhinos, Foran played at five-eighth in the 26-12 loss at Headingley Stadium.[29] Early in the 2012 NRL season, following the departure of Manly's 2008 and 2011 premiership-winning coach Des Hasler to the Canterbury Bulldogs, Foran activated a get-out clause in his current Manly contract and was offered a three-year deal by the Bulldogs worth $650,000 per season.[30] However, on 29 April 2012, Foran re-signed with Manly until the end of 2015, ending speculations about his future. For his part, Foran admitted after re-signing with Manly that he had dinner with Hasler and his family to personally inform his old coach and mentor of his decision to stay with the reigning NRL premiers.[31] Foran was ruled-out of the Kiwis' 2012 Anzac Test game clash against Australia, due to a hamstring injury.[32] During week 2 of the 2012 NRL Finals Series in which Manly played the North Queensland Cowboys, Foran was involved in a try scored by Michael Oldfield. After a Daly Cherry-Evans bomb in the 62nd minute, some, including Cowboys five-eighth and captain Johnathan Thurston, claimed that Foran had knocked the ball forward, which ultimately lead to a try being awarded by video referees Steve Clark and Paul Simpkins as 'benefit of the doubt'.[citation needed] Thurston was later quoted as telling referee Shayne Hayne that, "(the Cowboys) had been robbed twice," the first time being the 52nd minute try to Jorge Taufua. During the whole ordeal, Foran maintained that he had not made contact with the ball during the Sea Eagles 22-12 win.[33] Foran finished the season with him playing in 21 matches and scoring 4 tries for the Sea Eagles. On 13 October 2012, Foran was selected to play halfback for the Kiwis against the Australian Kangaroos in the post-season trans-Tasman test in which the Kiwis lost 18-10 at 1300SMILES Stadium.[34][35]

On 19 April 2013, Foran was selected to play five-eighth for New Zealand in the 2013 Anzac Test against Australia at Canberra Stadium. Hours before the test game, New Zealand captain Simon Mannering was ruled out of the game with a calf injury and Foran was then named as the New Zealand captain for the game, which resulted earning his first captaincy title for his country.[38][39] In round 24 against the Canberra Raiders, Foran played his 100th career match in the Sea Eagles 36-22 win at Canberra Stadium.[40] Foran went on to help guide Manly to the grand final.[citation needed] On 6 October 2013, Foran played five-eighth in the 2013 NRL Grand Final against the Sydney Roosters, however the Roosters won the game 26-18 and the NRL Premiership Title. Foran played in 27 matches and score 2 tries the Sea Eagles in the 2013 NRL season.

Foran during 2013 World Cup

Following the NRL grand final, Foran was named in the New Zealand Kiwis World Cup squad.[41] Coach Stephen Kearney had originally planned to rest Foran, along with the Sydney Roosters' players, for the team's World Cup warm-up game against the Cook Islands as they had all played in the NRL Grand Final. However Foran was called into action at five-eighth for the game following a hamstring injury to Thomas Leuluai.[42] Foran was selected for the Kiwis' first World Cup game, against Samoa, playing at five-eighth in the Kiwis' 42-24 win at Halliwell Jones Stadium.[43] The following week, he played in the Kiwis' 48-0 win over France at Parc des Sports (Avignon).[44] On 7 November 2013, New Zealand coach Stephen Kearney rested regular captain Simon Mannering and selected Foran to captain New Zealand for the Group B World Cup game clash against Papua New Guinea. The game saw Foran captaining New Zealand for the second time in his career.[45] The Kiwis beat PNG in that game 56-10, giving Foran his first win as Kiwis captain.[46] In the World Cup knockout finals, Foran featured in the Kiwis' quarter-final 40-4 win over Scotland,[47] and the semi-final 20-18 win over England, which took the Kiwis to the World Cup final for a re-match of the 2008 World Cup final against Australia.[48] Unlike the 2008 final, where New Zealand won their first ever World Cup by defeating Australia 34-20 at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia won the 2014 final 34-2, in front of a world record international rugby league crowd of 74,468 at the Old Trafford stadium in Manchester.[49][50] Following the World Cup, Foran won the Steve Watene Memorial medal on 9 December 2013, becoming only the second recipient after Jeremy Smith to win this award.[51] Foran was also named as the New Zealand Kiwis 2013 player of the year.[52]

2014[edit]

Following the Sea Eagles 26-21 win over the North Queensland Cowboys in round 7 at Central Coast Stadium, Foran picked-up a knee injury which ruled him out of the Kiwis' trans-Tasman Anzac Test match and was expected to sidelined him until round 12.[53] Foran returned from his knee injury in Manly's 36-10 loss to the Brisbane Broncos at Suncorp Stadium in round 12. During the game, he scored a try in the first half.[54] Foran finished off the 2014 NRL season with him playing in 22 matches and scoring 6 tries for the Sea Eagles. Following the end of the season, Foran was selected in New Zealand's 2014 Four Nations squad.[55][56] On 25 October 2014, Foran played his first Kiwi-test match at five-eighth in the Four Nations tournament round 1 opener at Suncorp Stadium, Foran produced a strong performance; as he, along with his halves-partner Shaun Johnson, guided the Kiwis to a 30-12 win over Australia, as well as guiding the team to their first win over Australia since the 2010 Four Nations final.[57][58][59][60] The following week he was again selected to play at five-eighth, against Samoa at Whangarei's Toll Stadium, meaning that this game was Foran's first test game in New Zealand. During the match against Samoa, he produced a strong man-of-the-match performance; scoring a try (in the 1st half of the game) and making 22 tackles, 6 runs for 58 metres, 2 off-loads, 2 line-break assist, 1 line-break, 2 try-saving tackles and 6 kicks in-play, in the Kiwis' 14-12 home-game win.[61][62][63][64] On 8 November, Foran again featured at five-eighth, helping to guide the Kiwis to a 16-14 win over England at Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium and guiding the team to the Four Nations grand final.[65][66][67] On 15 November, Foran played at five-eighth in the Four Nations tournament's grand final clash against Australia at Wellington's Westpac Stadium, producing a strong performance making 22 tackles, 6 runs for 60 metres, 1 line-break, 2 line-break assists, 2 off-loads, 1 try-assist (to Manu Vatuvei in the second half of the game) and 2 try-saving tackles.

Jackie O later apologized to Foran and Pope, commenting "I just want to take this time to personally apologise to Rebecca and Kieran for what I said. I can imagine how hurtful that would have been and I feel really terrible, I really do, and I'm truly sorry".[90][91]
