Catalan Dragons have confirmed an interest in bringing controversial ex Cronulla playmaker Todd Carney to the SuperLeague.
Carney’s recent sacking from the Sharks came just days before the transfer window closed in the National Rugby League. Dragons coach Laurent Frayssinous is interested in throwing him a lifeline.
“I suppose a lot of Super League teams will chase Todd Carney,” Frayssinous said. “What I can tell you as a coach is everyone would love to have such a quality player.
“He’s one of the best stand-offs in the world and I’m pretty sure we can use the relationship his manager has with Super League clubs.
“It’s not an objective at the moment. We’ll take the option to talk to Todd Carney when the right time arises.”
Potentially a move to the UK could be an issue as Carney was denied a working visa in 2008 when he signed with Huddersfield.
The Dragons sit in seventh spot in the Super League after nineteen matches.
