Eastwood joins Kiwis wider squad

Canterbury Bulldogs forward Greg Eastwood has been added to the NZ Kiwis train-on squad for next month’s test against Australia in Perth and Four Nations tournament in England.

Eastwood (Kiwi #737) is the only addition this week, after the Bulldogs and Gold Coast Titans were eliminated from NRL playoff contention last weekend.

A veteran of 24 tests, he debuted for New Zealand in 2007 and took the field for this year’s Downer Test against Australia in Newcastle.

The wider squad now stands at 24, with more additions likely this week’s NRL premiership semi-finals – North Queensland v Brisbane Broncos, Canberra Raiders v Penrith Panthers.

The final touring group of 24 will be named in the week following the NRL Grand Final on October 10.
