The NRL said today it has given final approval for Kieran Foran to be registered with the New Zealand Warriors.

A spokesman said a final psychological assessment had been received which cleared the way for Foran to resume his Rugby League career.

"In making our determination we have taken into account a range of factors including Kieran's physical and mental well being as well as behavioural issues," the spokesman said.

"Kieran has made it clear to the NRL that he regrets any actions in the past that may have caused angst to anyone and is thankful to have this chance to resume his career.

"He has paid a significant financial and personal price for his actions and we believe he should now be allowed to return to the NRL."
