Sydney papers write articles for Sydney fans, they don't tend to make a habit of talking up the Warriors chances with regards to anything - Johnson recently being ranked 6th best halfback by the Telegraph an example (although perhaps I'm just biased). That aside my (pretty limited) discussions with people 'in the know' would suggest that there isn't a whole heap of discretion applied when it comes to NRL contracts & signings. I've had board members of clubs happy to tell me exactly how much certain players are paid. One time I even heard how a board had voted on whether to offer their first grade captain a contract extension & that it only got through by 1 vote. Based on the lack of reporting on Foran & the Warriors I would give the chances of any of the related 'intel' that I've read here about a 0.001% chance of being accurate.
