    Carney has been linked with Munster in the past and today committed to the side not on a two year contract.


    Commenting on his move, the Cork born, Clongowes Wood College educated, “ It’s really a tremendous honour to be signed up by a club like Munster. My first objective is to get into that Munster side and become a player that the players want in the team.


    "To do that I know I have a lot of hard ahead of me. But, I’m prepared to knuckle down and see how things progress.


    "Knowing the history of the club it is a huge honour, it really is, definitely the recent history has been tremendous.I hope I can become a part of a winning successful side here and yes I am thrilled to be involved with a side like Munster and I’m looking forward to it all."


    Munster coach Declan Kidney said, “Given the injury situation in relation to Shaun Payne, Mossie Lawlor and Anthony Horgan, I think it’s particularly opportune to acquire someone of Brian's stature and experience for the end of season matches in Magners League and Heineken Cup.”</TD></TR></T></T></TABLE>

                        Rugby League star Carney joins Munster

                        Former Great Britain rugby league winger Brian Carney switched
                        codes tonight by signing a two-year contract with European rugby
                        union champions Munster.

                        The 30-year-old former Wigan favourite returned to his native Cork
                        to resurrect his career after announcing his retirement two months
                        ago.

                        Munster confirmed his capture after arranging a compensation deal
                        with Australian rugby league club Gold Coast, with whom Carney had
                        agreed a two-year deal, and was immediately added to their squad
                        for the knockout stages of the Heineken Cup.

                        “It’s really a tremendous honour to be signed up by a club like
                        Munster,” Carney told the club’s website www.munsterrugby.ie.

                        “My first objective is to get into that Munster side and become a
                        player that the players want in the team.

                        “To do that I know I have a lot of hard ahead of me. But I’m
                        prepared to knuckle down and see how things progress.

                        “Knowing the history of the club, it is a huge honour and I hope I can
                        become a part of a winning successful side.”



                        The autumn World Cup is an obvious incentive for Carney, who is
                        expected to be fast-tracked onto Ireland’s summer tour to Argentina
                        but has precious little time to adapt to a game he last played
                        regularly at the same school as centre Gordon D’Arcy.

                        Munster coach Declan Kidney said: “Given the injury situation in
                        relation to Shaun Payne, Mossie Lawlor and Anthony Horgan, I think
                        it’s particularly opportune to acquire someone of Brian’s stature and
                        experience for the end-of-season matches in Magners League and
                        Heineken Cup.”

                        The one-time Gaelic footballer was spotted playing rugby league for
                        a Dublin students team by Gateshead in 1999 and went on to play for
                        Hull and Wigan before moving to Australian club Newcastle Knights
                        last season.

                        He played for Ireland in the 2000 World Cup and won the last of his
                        14 Great Britain caps in their 23-12 win over Australia in Sydney in
                        November.

                          not to happy about this part,

                          "The autumn World Cup is an obvious incentive for Carney,
                          who is expected to be fast-tracked onto Ireland's summer tour to
                          Argentina, having last played rugby union when he was at school."

                          you can't really force this and i don't see why a settled irish side thats playing well should have someone forced on them, if he gets it on merit then fair enough, but i don't want an andy farrell situation.

                          he will be a great signing for munster and can't wait to see him play, will he be available for next weekends ML game?

                              The Irish backline despite the hype dont score enough tries with only Hickie and BOD being natural finishers. Darcy for example as only 3 tries in 30 odd games for Ireland. I'd say Shane Horgan is a worried man.


                              My computer thinks I'm gay
                              What's the difference anyway
