Todd Carney says he has regained his ‘spark’ since joining Cronulla.
Carney has been a star performer for the Sharks so far this year, helping the club to three straight wins.
His career seemed all but lost in September when he was released from the Roosters after breaking a high-profile booze ban.
But after resurrecting his career with the Sharks, Carney says he has been re-invigorated.
“As you can see on the field and watching me at training, there is a spark there now. I really think this club is heading in the right direction,” said Carney.
“I settled in from the very first week of training.”
“The boys were really good to me and the move has been good for me too.
“As a team I think we’re getting to where we need to be. If we can start fixing our attack up we’ll be a lot better but I’m comfortable with where I’m at. Hopefully I’ll keep getting better and that will improve the team.”
Carney’s partnership with another new signing, Jeff Robson, in the halves has proved a success for the Sharks so far this year and Carney is pleased to be playing a part.
“I know it’s only early but it’s been good with Robbo there,” Carney said.
“He has been a steadying influence for me. I can just focus on my own running game which has helped.
“I mean, it’s hard to read too much into it – we’ve only played three games together and I didn’t play any trials with him. It’s an early combination but even that’s a positive. Everyone has their own attributes and different ways of playing. ‘Robbo’ has his own and that seems to suit my game too.”
