The lesser-known Carney off to England

Justin Carney

Yes, his last name is Carney, but no, it is not the one we know as Todd – with Roosters winger Justin Carney signing a 2-year deal to head to England, with ESL side Castleford.

Carney, 24, has also played for the Canberra Raiders, but has seen limited game time at the Roosters since his move there, with Carney the latest player in a string of signings for Castleford.

Tigers coach Ian Millward is excited at what Carney can offer the club.

“I’m hugely delighted with the capture of Justin. He’ll perform a number of roles for us on the field as he is multi-skilled.

“He will become a crowd pleaser with his robust running and dynamic style. No one will run the ball harder or faster than Justin in Super League in 2013.

“He was pursued by many Super League clubs and thankfully I could call upon the friendship I formed with him at Canberra to get him across the line.

“He’ll be a major part of us moving forward.”
