Third ban for Carney


4th June 2013

In-form Castleford Tigers winger Justin Carney has been handed a third suspension of the season.

The 30-year-old Australian, who is in his first season in Super League after joining the Tigers from Sydney Roosters, has already missed four matches and will miss three more after being found guilty of foul play.

Carney, who has scored seven tries in his last five games, was given a two-match ban in March after being cited for punching and served another suspension in April after being found guilty of a dangerous throw.

He has now been banned again by the Rugby Football League's disciplinary committee, who found him guilty of a dangerous throw on London Broncos forward Shane Rodney during Castleford's 30-30 draw at the Twickenham Stoop on Saturday.

Carney's three-match ban will start with Friday's derby against champions Leeds Rhinos at Headingley.
