History and another premiership ring driving Foran to play 17th season

The quest to deliver the Gold Coast their first NRL premiership is a big reason why veteran playmaker Kieran Foran is going around again in 2025.

Set to venture into his 17th season next year after inking a new deal with the Titans on Wednesday, the 294-game veteran playmaker believes success is only around the corner for him and his teammates as he aims to not only create history but break a 13-year title drought for himself after last lifting the trophy in 2011. 

"I’m driven to taste ultimate success again... I want to win another NRL premiership," Foran declared.

"I firmly believe I can do it here at this club. I think we're in a really good window right now.

"I came here believing that and I've watched it grow over the last 18 months and us take small steps in that direction. You don't say that lightly because there's 17 teams in the NRL and it's the hardest competition in the world.

"It's always very close and all 17 teams believe they can win the competition each year, but I certainly believe we're coming into a really great spot here at this club.

"There's been a lot of work and a lot of time and effort put in to build slowly and what we're doing at the moment is learning how to play to our style and we're creating our own identity as a footy team.

"I just believe we're capable of some really great success over the coming years."

Fanciful Foran sends Randall over

Flourishing under the mentorship of Des Hasler who introduced the 33-year-old to the NRL in 2009, Foran says it's surreal being back together with the two-time premiership-winning coach who he believes will only continue to make a difference in his first season on the Gold Coast.

"It's quite bizarre how it all comes about, going full circle with a guy who handed me my debut all the way back in 2009 and whom I've had a wonderful relationship with across my career," he said.

"Des has been great for this club since coming on board. It's been amazing to watch the impact he's had on this group so far and I suspect it's only going to get better and better as time goes on.

"I'm loving being part of it and have enjoyed my time this year stepping up with the boys and trying to achieve success."

The Titans halfback isn't wanting to rule finals out the equation in 2024 either with the continued improvement under Hasler.

Chasing three wins on the trot against Parramatta this weekend at home, it's a challenge the Gold Coast squad want to embrace needing to win six or seven of their last remaining games to be in the mix for the top eight.

"We're not backing down from that and I don't back away from that," Foran said.

"We'll fight tooth and nail to make the finals this season. We're going to go after it.

"We know it's a fair mountain to climb in front of us but were up for the fight.

"It starts each and every week. We just have to keep winning and that's the ultimatum that we find ourselves in.

"We've just got to take each game as it comes and if we can keep winning, finals isn't out of the question and that would be a wonderful, wonderful achievement considering how we started."
