Eastwood to Contest Charge
Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs lock forward Greg Eastwood will tomorrow night contest the Grade 1 – Dangerous Contact – Other charge that was handed down by the NRL Match Review Committee.
The incident occurred in the 72nd minute of play on Roosters player Mitchell Pearce and although the charge only carries 90 points, the New Zealand born star has 73 carry over points that need to be added.
Eastwood will be hoping that the charge is overturned, leaving him free to play in the match against the Brisbane Broncos on Friday night. If found guilty, Eastwood will still only miss the one match.
