Story in brief:
The powerful 24-year-old former Canberra Raider is the club's sixth new signing; following Michael Shenton, Jake Webster, Jamie Ellis, Jordan Tansey and Lee Gilmour in already having committed to Cas for 2013.
On the signing of Carney, head coach Ian Millward said:
"I'm hugely delighted with the capture of Justin. He'll perform a number of roles for us on the field as he is multi skilled.
"He will become a crowd pleaser with his robust running and dynamic style. No one will run the ball harder or faster than Justin in Super League in 2013.
"He was pursued by many Super League clubs and thankfully I could call upon the friendship I formed with him at Canberra to get him across the line. He'll be a major part of us moving forward and it is clear he is excited about being a part of Castleford Tigers in 2013."
