Originally from VFA second division side Sunshine, where he played 31 games and kicked 48 goals from 1974 to 1976, Wayne Foreman was a useful if unobtrusive on-baller and half back/half forward flanker who made his VFL debut with Footscray in 1977. During his three season stint with the Bulldogs he played 40 games and kicked 28 goals. The 1980 season saw him at Essendon where he played on a half forward flank in the club’s 1981 night premiership-winning team. Shortly afterwards, having played 26 VFL games and scored 30 goals for the Bombers, he was cleared to West Perth, where over the course of the rest of the 1981 season and 1982 he added a final four league games and five goals to his respective career tallies.
