KIERAN Foran has been given the all clear to return to the NRL for the Warriors.
Foran will make his comeback in round three against the Bulldogs, pending the outcome of a psychological assessment.
The former Eel has had his contract registered by the NRL, with CEO Todd Greenberg confirming he would be eligible for selection from round three.
Warriors managing director Jim Doyle said the club is excited to have Foran available for the 2017 season and is impressed with the progress the former Kiwi captain has made.
“We have seen Kieran’s progress over the last few months and we are confident he will be ready for round three,” Doyle said.
“Kieran has already become an integral part of our squad off the field and his team-mates will be thrilled to see him back on the field.”
Foran is ecstatic to have been given the go-ahead and is looking forward to returning to rugby league.
“Naturally I would love to return in round one because I love rugby league and I love being part of the Warriors,” he said.
“But both the club and NRL have put my welfare first throughout so I am just happy that my contract is registered and I now have a date for my return.”
