But here’s what Todd had to say:
- Carney confirmed he had used a Nokia handset to take the explicit images of himself in front of the bathroom mirror while home alone late one night at his Goulburn home “about six months ago”.
The beleaguered player – sacked from the Canberra Raiders after a string of high-profile drunken misdemeanours said he had forwarded the photos to a girl he met on social network site Facebook some months later after she exchanged a lewd photograph of herself.
“She’d asked me to take them before … I don’t want to go back to that night though,” he said.
Carney said he was at a loss as to how the photos ended up on the handset, but speculated they may have been forwarded by an unknown person who picked up the Nokia handset he lost in January.
For the very brave or curious, News are running a slideshow of the pics.
