Todd Carney Approved!

Todd Carney Visa Application has been approved and he will be allowed to Join the Red Devils as soon as the Weekend.

Carney, 30, was released by the Catalan Dragons at the end of the 2016 season and flew home to Australia hoping to resurrect his NRL career.

But, it was understood that the NRL bad boy was blocked by the NRL integrity unit, which made clubs look the other way.

Carney then signed a 1-year contract with the Salford Red Devils in January and has been waiting/hoping that his visa application would be approved.

In 2009, Carney was denied a visa application because of drink driving offences, which stopped a signing with the Huddersfield Giants

Head coach Ian Watson is pleased with the result and told the Salford Red Devils website:

“Todd is able to play in all the positions along the spine of the team. I know how excited he is to come across and perform for the club.”

Carney will miss Thursdays clash against the Huddersfield Giants, but is expected to make his debut against Leeds in their 24 February match-up.

The NRL and Super League journeyman has played 199 first class games and won the won the 2010 Dally M Medal, as the best NRL player in that year.
