Todd Carney headed for North Queensland

Months ago, North Queensland coach Paul Green says he flatly refused an initial approach from controversial playmaker Todd Carney.

Cowboy's feeder club, North Pride, claimed that Carney had agreed to an offer from the NRL, igniting vast speculation, eventually concluding that Cowboys had signed the 31-year old.

9News reported Danny Weidler tweeted that Carney has already agreed to terms and the deal will be signed on Wednesday.

Carney must prove to the NRL he is worthy of a fourth chance after being sacked by the Raiders, Roosters, and Sharks for off-field indiscretions before any new deal will be registered.

"Because it would seem, on the surface - and this is the issue with the NRL because they never give you all the information - that if Matt Lodge is playing top flight rugby league in this country, then Todd Carney should absolutely be allowed back".

"When he was here he was really good for us", Aubusson said.

"Without having that NRL carrot dangled in front of him, he went back, knuckled down and trained well with the Pride and, off field, he has been good".

Carney was let go by the Cronulla Sharks and deregistered in 2014 after the infamous "bubbler" incident - something he said he was ready to move on from.

Carney spent two seasons with Super League's Catalans Dragons before shifting a year ago to Salford.

Speaking on the Fox NRL Market Watch podcast, Parr said that the club is still considering whether or not to offer the 31-year-old a contract but added that if they do it will be sent to the NRL in the very near future.

"I appreciate what I lost and what I had".

"I'm not going to comment and buy into the whole Matt Lodge thing".

He has fond memories of his time with Carney.

Former Roosters teammate Jake Friend believed Carney could be a great fit at North Queensland.

"I think I've become a better player, a smarter player". To get that back would be a dream come true again.

"If a contract is lodged, we will consider it on its merits".

"We would need to be convinced that he is fit and proper to be part of the NRL".
