Todd Carney could be going to Cronulla

NRL bad boy Todd Carney looks headed to Cronulla while his former employers Sydney Roosters distance themselves from All Blacks star Sonny Bill Williams.

It has been revealedSouth Sydneyhad no interest in signing troubled former Dally M Medal winner Carney while Gold Coast Titans have withdrawn their interest.

That leaves Carney with just one option – the Sharks.

Cronulla coach Shane Flanagan will meet with Carney’s manager, David Riolo, when it is understood the Sharks will table a two or possibly three-year deal.

The Sharks will, however, insist Carney agree to a number of strict discipline clauses before signing the former Sydney Roosters and Canberra star.

NRL chef executive David Gallop will also interview Carney before registering the brilliant yet erratic player for what could be his final chance in the NRL.

Gallop has been frustrated at Carney’s ongoing promises regarding his behaviour. Photos of a heavily tattooed Carney holidaying inThailand, seemingly intoxicated, may not endear him to Sharks fans.

Asked how his club would handle Carney if he signed, Sharks chairman Damian Irvine said: “We would handle Todd exactly the same as the rest of our roster. We have a good, genuine roster.

“They know what is below the line and above the line in terms of behaviour. We have standards and expectations.”

Meanwhile the Roosters have denied rugby league’s hottest rumour – that the club will shortly sign All Blacks superstar Sonny Bill Williams

For the past week speculation has increased that Williams will return to the NRL after Rugby World Cup 2011, and Bondi was where many thought Williams would land.

But one Roosters official said: “It’s rubbish. We have never had a chat to him.”
