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.
