A former NRL player has been charged by Australian police with public nuisance after he was filmed allegedly brawling with another man on a rural street in Queensland.
Chris Sandown, former Rabbitohs and Eels halfback, features in a video on Facebook allegedly fighting another man in Cherbourg, in the South Burnett region.
9 News Brisbane confirm that a 27-year-old man has been charged but police would not confirm to the station that it was in fact Sandown.

"Police have charged a 27-year-old man from Cherbourg with public nuisance following investigations into an alleged incident yesterday," a police statement read.
"This is part of an investigation by police into an alleged ongoing disturbance which has occurred at Cherbourg on the weekend."
He is due to appear before Murgon Magistrates Court on January 10.
Sandown also lined out for UK Super League club Warrington Wolves but left the club in November last year citing family reasons.
