Storm confirm Sandor Earl signing

SANDOR Earl's return from a four-year ASADA drug ban is complete, with Melbourne confirming his NRL signature.

Earl, banned for peptides trafficking as part of ASADA's darkest-day-in-sport investigation, has signed a one-year deal at the Storm.

"While he has been sidelined, he has maintained his fitness levels to a high level. Anyone that is prepared to put in the work after what he has been through deserves a second chance," coach Craig Bellamy said.
