The Warriors star recruit Kieran Foran will make his first appearance for the club from the bench when they take on the St. George Illawarra Dragons at UOW Jubilee Oval on Sunday.

Stephen Kearney couldn't help himself when discussing what his new signing will bring to the Warriors in 2017.

Having joined the club after quitting the Parramatta Eels midway through 2016, Foran is yet to taste any competitive action for the Warriors, having to overcome both a shoulder injury and recieve clearance from the NRL's integrity unit.

Foran's naming comes at the right time for the Warriors, who have struggled since the opening round victory over the Newcastle Knights, suffering back-to-back losses to the Melbourne Storm and the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in the matches since.

Foran still has long way to go before returning to the NRL but Kearney has already witnessed a big change in the troubled playmaker.

Elsewhere, captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck returns, having missed the clash with the Bulldogs in Dunedin with concussion.
