Castleford coach Ian Millward has signed five players for the 2013 season

Castleford have signed Sydney Roosters winger Justin Carney on a two-year deal from next season.

The 24-year-old former Canberra Raider is the club's fifth confirmed recruit for 2013 following the signing of Jake Webster, Jordan Tansey and Lee Gilmour as well as the return of Michael Shenton from St Helens.

Tigers coach Ian Millward said: "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 added: "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."
