After winning the 2008 Dally M Rookie of the Year medal Chris Sandow looked to set the NRL alighting to guide his club the South Sydney Rabbitohs back to the glory days.

However, for the remainder of his time at the Bunnies, the Rabbitohs failed to make the NRL finals every season and it didn’t help that the year after he left the Bunnies finished in the top four.

In 2012, Sandow signed with the Parramatta Eels on a four-year deal as he looked to rejuvenate his career at a club that could do with being rejuvenated themselves. Off the bat, Sandow faced criticism off Parramatta legend Peter Sterling as he accused him of being unfit and overweight in 2012. That criticism would become a foreshadowing as to the scrutiny Sandow and the Eels would succumb to in coming seasons with the Eels finishing last in seasons 2012 and 2013 and failing to make the finals during Sandow’s tenure at the club.

In 2015 the Eels would release Sandow during the final year of his contract where he would go to the English Super League. Sandow signed with the Warrington Wolves where he was an unwelcome addition by Warrington fans with them famously chanting “what a waste of money” at their new half.

In 2016, Sandow would make his first professional grand final in a game where the Wolves were to be defeated by the Wigan Warriors.

In 2017 Sandow signed a one-year contract with Intrust Super Cup side the Norths Devils where he was dropped in May for failing to show up to training.
