Lyon set to step in if Foran’s unfit

TALENTED Manly five-eighth Kieran Foran is battling the clock in an effort to recover from a calf strain in time to play against the Roosters in tonight's round four clash at Allianz Stadium.

The Kiwi international missed last week's win against the Eels with the complaint.

Skipper Jamie Lyon is expected to play in the halves if Foran is out, with last week's debutant, Tony Satini, to move into the centres.

Satini said marking the explosive Michael Jennings would be the most challenging aspect of taking on the premiers.
