Castleford Tigers have revealed they have secured the signing of winger Justin Carney on a two-year deal.

The 24-year-old forward will make the switch from the Sydney Roosters - with Carney the club's sixth new recruit for the 2013 season.

Castleford have already agreed deals with Michael Shenton, Jake Webster, Jamie Ellis, Jordan Tansey and Lee Gilmour.

And head coach Ian Millward is pleased with his latest acquisition.

"I'm hugely delighted with the capture of Justin. He'll perform a number of roles for us on the field as he is multi-skilled," he told the club's official site.

"He will become a crowd pleaser with his robust running and dynamic style. No one will run the ball harder or faster than Justin in Super League in 2013.

"He was pursued by many Super League clubs and thankfully I could call upon the friendship I formed with him at Canberra to get him across the line.

"He'll be a major part of us moving forward and it is clear he is excited about being a part of Castleford Tigers in 2013."
