Carney about to be given a last chance

8:00 am on 27 October 2011

It's the dry way or the highway for the troubled Sydney league star Todd Carney who's been given one last chance by the National Rugby League to turn his life around.

Cronulla are set to officially announce the signing of the controversial playmaker but both parties will neet to meet with the NRL, who will lay down the law to Carney about overturning his history of drunken behaviour.

Carney has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with the Sharks, who will become his third NRL club after he was let go by both Canberra and the Sydney Roosters in the wake of off-field disciplinary issues, mostly alcohol-related.
