Warrington sign Brian Carney

Ex-Wigan Warriors winger, Brian Carney, has agreed terms to join Warrington Wolves at the end of June.

Carney, 32, has been playing rugby union in Ireland with Munster after walking out of his Gold Coast Titans contract in 2007 without playing a game.

He previously played for Newcastle Knights in the NRL and played 14 times for Great Britain.

He started his Super League career with Gateshead before moving to Hull following the merger of the two clubs. He was then signed by Wigan in 2001 before moving Down Under in 2006.

Carney said: “I’m really looking forward to a new challenge with Warrington Wolves and am equally looking forward to working with the squad and Tony Smith and hope that I can add something to their game.”

“I’d also like to thank the players and everyone involved in Munster for their time and efforts. I enjoyed my time there.”

Wolves head of coaching and rugby Tony Smith is looking forward to working with Carney.

He said: “I am really excited by the prospect of getting to work with Brian.

“He’s a championship player and his experience and knowhow will be a real asset to the squad.”

Carney was the NRL‘s top try scorer in 2006 with 16 tries in 26 appearances. He made 20 appearances for Munster, scoring five tries, and also made four appearances for the Ireland national team.
