Eric Watson says he needed to “lay off the Halloween punch” after announcing the ‘signing’ of Kieran Foran.

Manly Sea Eagles half-back Kieran Foran will not be joining the New Zealand Warriors, despite club co-owner Eric Watson tweeting otherwise.
Watson tweeted: “Gt signing for @NZWarriors with Kieran Foran – exciting player. Gt game yday against Samoa Welcome to the Warriors family #WarriorsForever”.
It is believed Watson may have have been referring to the signing of Wests Tigers player Bodene Thompson, who the Warriors snared on a three-year deal.
“I definitely need to lay off the Halloween punch sorry to cause such a stir. Kieran Foran is on our wish list but not signed. Apologies fans.”
Foran, who is currently with the New Zealand Four Nations squad, is off-contract with Manly at the end of the 2015 season.
