    So far looks like it was a success but with these types of Injuries its really a time thing, he just has to wait and see how the recovery goes before any proper conclusion.

    Greg Eastwood is on the mend after having surgery to fix an irregular heartbeat.

    The Bulldogs lock underwent a minor medical procedure on Monday but is yet to return to training.

    Eastwood has sat-out pre-season training for the past two weeks and will need to complete a stress test on Monday before he is cleared to resume training.

    I hope that he's able to get well and resume playing to his potential this year. I love seeing him bust the line after picking up a short ball in traffic. He's not quick, but can smack through the line like a bowling ball when he makes a well timed support run.

    Time enough for three F's and a sandwich.

    Would certainly explain lacklustre performances this season.

    Maybe he had it and got worse over time. I have always been asymptomatic last 6 years, which makes shit worse.

    I think he was just fat, unfit and lazy tbh. He's always been lazy with a low workrate

    I think this has nothing to do with his performance. If his heart was failing he wouldn’t have been able to play.
    Just an irregular heartbeat. Every other cunt has it.

    It’s obviously NOW progressed to something serious but if that was present during the season he wouldn’t have lasted twenty minutes.

    More importantly, does an injury like this, incurred outside of football, deem him ineligible for a medical retirement ?

    To answer my own question, I think it does.

    Watch the bulldogs doctors get creative and link the two together.

    Or watch him get ‘injured’ 5 mins into a trial game next season that ends his career.

    For the record, if we bump him for 2018. We should invest in a good forward. Ethan Lowe, or a Pom like Alex Walmsley or even that big French guy. We have good forwards but no depth.

    Agreed but we need speed and/or X factor not more forwards.
    I’d be watching the parramatta situation closely or target RTS when he comes off contract
