Former NRL star Todd Carney has offloaded one of his Sydney property investments. The one-bedroom Sans Souci apartment fetched $600,500.

It was bought in 2012, when playing for the Cronulla Sharks, for $460,000 off the plan. The third-floor 83sqm Rocky Point Rd apartment sold to another owner in the block.

The unit was bought by Carney off-the-plan in 2012.


After his NRL career ended in 2014 following alcohol-related incidents, Carney went overseas, then Cairns and last season was captain at the Byron Bay Red Devils in the Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League whose 2020 season has been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Red Devils, who had been ­expected to push for the premiership, missed the semi-finals last season with Carney having his fair share of injuries along with his teammates, making it difficult to cover injuries with no bench.
