Carney expected to re-sign with Raiders

Canberra are expected to announce the re-signing of star halfback Todd Carney to the NRL club.

The Raiders have called a press conference for 1.30pm (AEDT) on Friday where they are likely to confirm an extension of Carney's contact, which is due to expire at the end of this season.

The 21-year-old had been weighing up lucrative offers from NRL rivals Penrith and Manly, while the Raiders tabled a four-year deal to keep him in the nation's capital.
