    Carney sticks with Canberra
    http://www.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/sport/nrl/story/0,26799,23373370-5006066,00.html

    THE Canberra Raiders have received a massive boost on the eve of their NRL season with star half Todd Carney agreeing to a new deal with the club.

    The Daily Telegraph can reveal Carney, 21, has rejected massive offers from the Penrith Panthers and Manly Sea Eagles to remain loyal to the Raiders.

    A club spokesman said the deal was a two-year extension, with a further two-year option until 2012.

    Carney, who is being touted as a potential NSW halfback as early as this year, had reportedly been offered a $2million dollar, four-year deal by the Panthers. The Raiders deal will be $400,000 a year.

    A Goulburn junior, Carney has played all his NRL football with the Raiders since debuting in 2004.

    The Raiders will make the announcement this afternoon.

    Good on him. As much as we could have done with him, Canberra has shown a lot of patience with him and he needed to show some loyalty in return.

    There must be a message there somewhere for Manly.

    Develop your own juniors and they will stay with you for less money.  Hmmmm.

    I hear Cuthbertson tunred down a better offer to stay at Manly. I also heard Choc did the same with The Dragons.

    We're good.

    I liked what I saw from groom but his defense was shocking. I dont think we will see much from him going forward.

    I think Travis will do extremely well with Thurston next to him in QLD but I think that we wouldnt have seen the same with him here.
