It's a roller coaster of a career but things are looking up for NRL bad boy Todd Carney, who has reportedly agreed to a new deal with the North Queensland Cowboys.
It remains unclear if the NRL has yet sanctioned the recruitment move, but the 31-year-old has reportedly agreed to a new deal with the Cowboys and could put pen to paper as early as Wednesday this week.
Carney on Monday night declared he wants to make a return to the NRL, insisting the game’s bosses would see he’s a changed man if given the chance.
Carney has been been playing for the Northern Pride in the Queensland Cup this season, knocking back a million-dollar deal to stay in the English Super League with Hull KR in the process.
Speaking about his past misdemeanors, Carney said “I’m not going to blame it on being young, I was stupid".
“I think I’ve become a better player, a smarter player. I definitely still believe I can handle the NRL."
