Parramatta Eels, who are 20/1 with bet365 to win NRL Grand Final 2012, are confident that they have found their savior in the form of Chris Sandow.
The former Rabbitohs star shares a lot of traits with the legendary Eels half back Peter Sterling, who was instrumental in Parramatta’s premiership triumph of 1986.
But Sandow is adamant that he alone can’t work magic and transform Parramatta into a premiership side. Instead, he is expecting Eels’ other stars to help him out and take the pressure off him.
He said, “I wouldn’t say I was carrying Souths (this year). Everyone did their job there and I think that’s what is expected at Parramatta as well. A lot of pressure is off me too with Jarryd (Hayne) and Benny (Roberts) there.”
