Watson: “We’ve brought in a phenomenal winger”

Ian Watson believes Salford have signed one of the best wingers in Super League after completing a season-long loan deal for Justin Carney.

Carney became Salford’s seventh signing of the off-season this week, with Watson delighted to bring in the winger after off-field issues tarnished the end of his Castleford career, where he scored over a try per game in his 62 appearances.

“He can do absolutely everything,” said Watson


“He’s going to have a massive influence on our team. As an overall winger you’d say he has everything in his locker.”

Watson also said that Salford had carefully considered the signing following his off-field problems and that the current Salford players would welcome him into the squad.
