Carney to make Wolves bow against Saints

Former Wigan winger Brian Carney is set to make his Warrington debut in their derby game against St Helens on Saturday.

Carney, 32, has been named in Tony Smith’s 19-man squad and the club have confirmed he will definitely feature in the televised clash.

The former Great Britain international scored a try for the Wolves reserve side against Celtic Crusaders last weekend.

Boss Tony Smith said: “He certainly needed a couple of runs in reserve grade. He had a massive improvement in the second week so he’s better prepared for when he does play.”

Carney hasn’t played a senior game for more than two and a half years, an international match in the 2006 Tri Nations. – his last club game came in the NRL for Newcastle Knights.
