Bulldogs halfback Kieran Foran may have played his last game of NRL, with the club looking to secretly retire him on medical grounds.
After dealing with persistent toe, neck and shoulder injuries, the 27-year old is failing to live up to his $1 million per-season deal, failing replicate the stellar form he showed in his days with Manly and New Zealand.
Assuming the NRL agrees to Foran being retired by Canterbury, he will still be paid out, however, the $1 million he is owed next season will not fall under their salary, giving the club significant cap space.
The Bulldogs are tied up in salary cap after taking on too many back-ended contracts. As a result, the Morris twins will move to England, Moses Mbye has signed with the Tigers, while Aaron Woods is every chance to be moved on in the coming days.
Foran has played 186 NRL games since debuting in 2009.
