The Newtown Jets have secured the exclusive services of New Zealand international Greg Eastwood for the 2019 Intrust Super Premiership NSW, in one of the biggest signings in the competition’s history.

Eastwood will play the entire season for the Jets, with the club hoping to go one step further than they did in 2018, after losing to Eastwood’s former side Canterbury in the final.

Eastwood’s inclusion surely lifts the Jets into premiership calculations, so be sure to check in with a pointsbet promo for the best offers on their 2019 chances.

The 31-year-old joins the Jets after 14 seasons in the NRL with the Broncos and Bulldogs.

Eastwood made his first-grade debut for Brisbane back in Round 26, 2005, and played 64 games for the Broncos between 2005-2008.

He made his Canterbury debut in Round 2 of 2009, and went on to play 177 for the Bulldogs, and featured in 15 games last season.

He has also represented his country on 27 occasions.

The veteran will bring a much-needed boost of experience to Newtown, who currently have a relatively youthful side.

  1. Who cares❓❓❓❓❓❓❓ After soufffths lost former Easts NYC forward Crichton you would of thought they were after an international replacement who only wanted peanuts for pay to be offered a contract and play under the washed up relic Bennett.

    I suppose Bennett could not resurrect Sam Tagataese career at Brisbane last season and has come to the realisation he has lost his skills in that department at 69-70 yrs of age. Lets hope for the good health of his heart that at Newtown Greg Eastwood does not turn into another Dave Taylor. Bennett will be flat out trying to motivate and resurrect the Burgess brothers and old boy Sutton for this coming season.💪🐔👉😂🤣😆😁😂🤣🎱

  2. I hardly think Greg Eastwood is going to “light up” the ISP in 2019. Realistically he made his name as a work horse. not a fleet footed back scorching the turf to score a try. Perhaps Mr Stephen Marson should take a couple of deep breaths before posting exaggerated news in future!
