28 NT NEWS. Monday, August 6, 2012. www.ntnews.com.au P U B : N T N E W S D A T E : 6 -A U G -2 0 1 2 P A G E : 2 8 C O L O R : C M Y K RUGBY LEAGUE ByDANIEL GILHOOLY Flanagan blasts Carney rumours CRONULLA coach Shane Flanagan has launched a scornful attack on speculation surrounding star NRL playmaker Todd Carney. In the wake of Carneys match-winning display in his sides 45-4 crushing of the Warriors in Auckland yesterday, Flanagan issued an im promptu plea for the scandalous rumours to cease. Carney tried himself to end the speculation, related to alleged drug use, via Twitter. But Flanagan said a cloud continued to hang over the 26-year-old which was clearly affecting him off the field. Theres been a lot of rumour and speculation going on about Todd in his last six weeks since Origin, he said. Its been totally unfair, its been incorrect and its scandalous that its gone on. Flanagan said the Sharks had spoken to the NRL about the issue and tried to track down where the rumours had begun but with no success. The coach said it made Carneys dominant 25-point display yesterday all the more remarkable, given the stress he was under. Its affecting him, his family and sponsors of the club so its not fair, Flanagan said. The way Todd played today, to score two tries and kick all those goals, is a credit to his mental toughness and his attitude. Carney tweeted his bemusement about the issue more than two weeks ago. Surely people could come up with a better rumor than what Im hearing at the moment. Its almost as good as pigs can fly. Whats next Im pregnant, Carney posted on July 25.
