KIERAN Foran could be a quick fix for the Brisbane Broncos, but that does not mean he is the best choice.
Foran’s future will be a constant talking point throughout the upcoming NRL season given he has only signed a one-year deal with the Warriors.
Foran could thrive under Wayne Bennett, who has a proven track record in turning around the careers of struggling players.
And his playing credentials cannot be doubted.
Foran, 26, is a premiership-winning Test playmaker. They do not come around very often.
On the surface it looks like an ideal marriage, but a long-term relationship is what the Broncos are desperately chasing.
Foran and Wests Tigers duo Mitchell Moses and Luke Brooks headline the list of playmakers coming off contract this season, but next year is when the real action will occur.
Titans dynamos Kane Elgey and Ashley Taylor will be looking for new deals along with Nathan Cleary, Blake Austin, Te Maire Martin, Michael Morgan, Trent Hodkinson and Aidan Sezer.
It is a smorgasbord of talent to choose from and a lot could happen between now and then.
Foran does not have a lot of bargaining power. He has been out of the game for nearly a year.
It will be months before he makes a decision on his future and the Broncos hold all the aces if he decides he wants to head to Red Hill.
He seems like an easy option for the Broncos, but in Brisbane’s case it might be best to suffer some short-term pain for long-term gain.
