Justin Carney is a powerful outside back who has joined Rovers on a contract until the end of the 2018 season.

Carney previously had spells with Canberra Raiders and Sydney Roosters in the NRL before making a big impact in Super League with Castleford Tigers, where he averaged better than a try per game with 72 tries in 67 appearances, and then later Salford Red Devils.

As well as being a proven try-scorer, the 15-stone winger is renowned for his abilities as a strong ball carrier able to get his team on the front foot and adds considerable size and strike to the Robins’ back line.
