Canberra board to discuss Carney and Irwin

Board members at the Canberra Raiders will meet on Friday to discuss possible courses of action for Todd Carney and Steve Irwin after their alleged involvement in a high-speed police chase last weekend.

Raiders chief executive Simon Hawkins says the club has still not settled on any further punishment for the pair and wants to discuss the matter further before coming to any decisions. Both players have been suspended indefinitely and could have their contracts torn up by the club.

Carney, one of the Raiders' most promising talents, had his license suspended for five years following drink-driving incident in February. Canberra have recalled halfback Michael Dobson for Friday's match against the Dragons in Carney's absence.
