Manly Sea Eagles ace Kieran Foran says he has no intention of hanging up his boots at the end of 2022 and believes he has what it takes to play on for many years.
The Sea Eagles are priced at 4/5 to finish in the top four of the NRL this season and Foran is set to play a key role in their push for silverware.
12 months ago Foran penned a two-year deal with the club and at the time said there was a good chance it would be his last one before hanging up his boots.
However another year down the line and entering into his 14th season in the NRL, the veteran five-eighth says he is feeling better than ever and is keen to play on beyond the end of the season.
A lot could happen between now and the end of 2022 but for now Foran feels as though his body is ready to play on.
"If you'd said to me 12 months ago if I got through this two years with Manly, 'would I be content?', I would have said 'bloody oath'," Foran admitted. "But now I want more.
"It's just where I am feeling physically and mentally. I feel like I have learned how to look after myself. I don't have an endpoint at this stage. I don't want to put a time period on it.
"It comes down to what I can do on the footy field. Hopefully, there are a few more years to come. I am 31, I will be 32 midway through this year. But I'm not ready to roll over yet."
Meanwhile Foran has suggested he will only play on if Manly want to keep him and he cannot see himself turning out for another club.
"It would be unlikely I want to leave this club and head somewhere else," Foran added. "If they want me here, I will be here. Put it that way.
"I love this club, I love playing under Dessie. I love playing with the guys in this footy side. It's a no-brainer."
