Carney signed on a two-year deal from NRL side Sydney Roosters prior to the 2013 season. He went on to score 21 tries in 19 appearances, including a hat-trick in the final home match of the season against Salford.

He made his first team debut for Canberra Raiders in 2008. 2010 was a career lowlight for him though, as a badly broken leg kept him out for the full season.

A switch to the Roosters was imminent, and Carney set about regaining his fitness. He can play in the centres, or on the wing.

2012 saw Carney play for the Roosters 17 times, scoring 3 tries. A former New South Wales Schoolboy, he was nominated in 2009 for the Ken Stephen Medal for his outstanding contribution in the community.

He continued his hard work in the community at Cas by holding ‘Camp Carney' events in 2013 and 2014 for the local community, and earned viral headlines after he donated his boots to a young supporter following a match.

A firm fans favourite, Carney always excites Tigers fans at The Mend-A-Hose Jungle. Justin was voted the Fans Player of the Year and was 2nd Place Player of the Year at the 2013 End of Season Player of the Year Awards, before scoring 17 league tries in a stellar campaign one year on.
