Sandow hints at return to the top

Is former Warrington half-back Chris Sandow set for a return to top-level rugby league?

Well the 30-year-old took to Instagram earlier today to announce that ‘big news is coming soon’ while tagging in both Super League and the NRL.

Sandow has not played first grade since walking out on the final year of his contract with Warrington at the end of the 2016 Super League season.

Since then he has been involved in off-field controversies and received a $300 fine at a Queensland court in January 2017 after being filmed in a street brawl.

He was stood down by Queensland Cup team Norths Devils later that year after missing a training session, which subsequently led to his departure from the club.

Sandow spent 2018 playing for local team Moranbah Miners and it appeared his chance at the top had gone after becoming the sport’s forgotten man.

However, the one-time Indigenous All Stars representative took to his Instagram earlier to post an image of the slogan “Keep calm big news coming soon.”

Sandow added the caption: “Let’s all do the Sandow. Stay tuned to all my haters #returnofthemack @superleaguerl @nrl”

It remains to be seen where Sandow is headed, but the on-field talents of the former South Sydney Rabbitohs and Parramatta Eels playmaker cannot be questioned.

In his only full season with Warrington, he was instrumental in the club getting to both major finals and was a leading contender for the Steve Prescott Man of Steel award.

Although a move back to the Wolves is out of the question, a return to England is definitely not and Sandow’s attitude of playing in Super League will have changed after a nightmare two years.
