Salford sign Carney on loan

Castleford Tigers’ Justin Carney will join Salford Red Devils on loan for the 2016 season.

The 27 year-old winger joined the Tigers in 2013 from Sydney Roosters and racked up a better than try a game ratio in England.

Carney agreed a five-year deal with Cas last year but was suspended by the club at the back end of Super League XX, but was later reinstated following an internal investigation.

Carney becomes Salford’s third off season signing, following Robert Lui and Ben Murdoch-Masila from the NRL.

Head coach Ian Watson told the club’s website: “There are few stronger players in the League than Justin Carney and we are really looking forward to working with and getting him on track with our philosophy and goals here this season.

“Justin is an immense athlete with a strike rate that is up there with the best in the world. He is exciting to watch and our fans are going to enjoy watching him run at defences week in week out.”

Carney added: “I’m happy to be joining the Red Devils and looking forward to a new challenge. I’m ready to get started and really rip in ahead of the 2016 season.”
