Sacked by his club, and awarded what amounts to a life ban by the NRL, Carney’s ‘bubbling’ prank and its aftermath have been well-documented in recent days.

“He would certainly be a good signing for someone, but I doubt that would be us.”
Dr Marwan Koukash has also taken to Twitter to confirm that Carney is not a target for Salford.
