Hitting the back end of his rugby league career, Kieran Foran has commented on where he stands in regard to his international future.
However, with Foran remaining off-contract at the Gold Coast Titans come the end of 2024, he has admitted that whilst he won't retire from international football, he has likely played his final game in the Kiwis jersey.
“I absolutely love playing for my country and I'd do it at the drop of a hat,” Foran told NRL.com.
“But New Zealand rugby league is in a really great place at the moment. We have got some tremendous depth.
"I was probably only here through injuries to other guys and I am sure those guys will be fit and firing in future years.
“I'm grateful to be part of it this time around, but if that is the last one then jeez, what a way to finish.
“It [international footy] is some of the most special memories I have created in my rugby league journey."
He would later become the longest-serving current Kiwis player by seven years and has been a mainstay of the nation's lineup for the past two decades.
