Backroom role at Wolves for Carney

Warrington Wolves have named former Great Britain and Ireland international Brain Carney as their player welfare and services officer.

The role is the first of its kind in rugby league and will include developing the off-field talents of the players as well as their athletic ability.

"The Wolves are working hard to Autumn Internationals 2009 and strengthen their future by developing both the on-field and off-field activity," said a statement.

"The recruitment of Carney into the backroom staff is another example of the Wolves investing in the future of the club, having already appointed Chris Baron as head of strength and conditioning from Leicester Tigers and the three big on-field signings in Richie Myler, Ryan Atkins and David Solomona along with the up-and-coming talent of our youth teams."

Carney played over 100 times for Wigan Warriors before changing codes in 2007 to represent Munster.

He made four appearances for Ireland during his two years in rugby union until he joined Warrington this year.

The 33-year-old will take up his new role at the Wolves on a part-time basis.

"A role such as this is long over due in Rugby League clubs and I am excited about being involved with a Club pioneering a designated welfare officer position," said Carney of his appointment.

Wolves boss Tony Smith added: "Brian has a lot to give to the game, I'm pleased he will be staying with us in the future and adding his wealth of knowledge and experience to the club."ADNFCR-8000010-ID-19434259-ADNFCR
