Sandy Campbell, a former professional rugby league player, has fallen from grace and is now homeless. He was diagnosed with throat cancer.
He was a cult figure during the 1980s and 1990s, and he played for the Sydney Roosters, South Sydney Rabbitohs, and Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs.
Sandy Campbell was known for his fast-paced style of playing and for being a popular figure in Papua New Guinea.
He was born in the island nation’s former administrative capital, Samarai. He was a talented rugby league player who was loved by his fans. During his peak, he was featured on the cover of the magazine “RBL Week” as Michael Jackson.
Since he stopped playing professional football, Campbell has become homeless. He often spends his time sleeping on a beach and collecting food at a homeless shelter in the Gold Coast.
He carries all of his belongings in a shopping trolley and spends his days aimlessly around the streets.
After he stopped playing professional football in 1991, Campbell struggled to find a job and maintain a positive relationship with his family.
According to a News Corp report, he was recently diagnosed with throat cancer. His friend Darren Smith revealed that Campbell has to regularly visit the hospital for his chemotherapy treatment. He then uses a tube to administer the medication.
Some of Campbell’s former teammates have rallied around him, and the Family of League is also planning on assisting him.
According to former league player Andrew Landers, he hopes the fans will help him by donating money.
