The dream start to Chris Sandow’s NRL career continued last night when the 19 year-old South Sydney halfback, playing in only his third NRL game, kicked yet another a game winning field goal for the Rabbitohs, handing them a remarkable victory over the Cowboys in Townsville.
Described as the Aboriginal Allan Langer, Sandow’s promotion to the NRL on the back of some blistering form in the Toyota Cup has sparked the Rabbitohs to three consecutive victories.
Originally from the Queensland community of Cherbourg, Sandow kicked a game winning field goal in his NRL debut against the Warriors four weeks ago and repeated those heroics again last night, calmly slotting over a one-pointer with 30 seconds remaining and scores locked at 28 all.
After trailing 12 – 4 at the halftime break, South’s rallied from 24 points down in the second half to score four unanswered tries. Sandow’s last minute field goal ensured the win and completed the second biggest comeback in NRL history.
