THE rebooting of troubled half Chris Sandow’s career could give the Broncos an ace up their sleeve if the 28-year-old can get his act together on and off the field.
Sandow has signed with Norths Devils in the Intrust Super Cup and has already made a strong impression at training.
But the Devils are a Broncos feeder club and if injuries strike Ben Hunt or Anthony Milford, coach Wayne Bennett has a potential ace up his sleeve.
“Chris turned up an hour early to do extras with one of our other players, Javarn White, and that tells me he’s keen and interested,” Devils coach Mark Gliddon says of Sandow’s first training hit-out.
“He has played 159 NRL games and 30-odd Super League games, so if he gets it right with us hopefully he can get another crack in the NRL.”
Bennett now has Benji Marshall lurking at Redcliffe and Sandow at the Devils as contingencies in the halves if anything goes amiss with his first-choice duo.
Gliddon says the Broncos were not behind the Sandow signing and that he is a straight Norths Devils-contracted player at this stage.
