Former Warrington Wolves star Chris Sandow linked with sensational rugby league return

Former Warrington Wolves halfback Chris Sandow could be set for a stunning reunion with the NRL.

That’s according to Australian sources Down Under who have told Serious About Rugby League that the ex-Parramatta Eel and South Sydney Rabbitoh could be heading for a train-and-trial contract with a few NRL sides hunting such a deal.

That being said, it’s likely that Sandow would have to show his worth for a feeder team before being given that opportunity.

The mercurial halfback hasn’t played rugby league since 2018 and last played at the highest level in 2016 as his stint at Warrington came to an end.

Sandow lost both major finals for the Wolves in 2018, with a Challenge Cup loss to Hull FC and a Grand Final defeat to the Wigan Warriors.

He then returned to Australia in the lower divisions but, in May of this year, insisted he’s ready to return to rugby league after three years out.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph’s Dean Ritchie back in May he was eager for one last chance to prove his worth: “I’ve still got something to offer and I’ve still got something to prove to myself. I just want that opportunity. A chance, that’s all I want. No club would regret it, no chance.”

Now, though, it appears as though the ball is rolling for a glimmer of hope for the diminutive halfback.

Sandow has also had a few boxing bouts in recent years – with one victory and one draw against former Salford Red Devils and Catalans Dragons halfback Todd Carney.

Since his professional rugby league days Sandow has lived in Moranbah and works in coal production.
