    Vertigo is an inner ear disturbance, linked to precipitate in endolymph.

    Eastwood retiring would be great in hindsight for the likes of Martin and RFM. This should free some cap room for either a signing this year or save it for 2019. Most wouldn’t have on the bench let alone the starting side. Unfortunate if true, he would been good to have off the bench.

    Sad but would be best for the club. Pay him out and use his cap for Pearce or see who we can get released? Rts?

    Eastwood was another one of the players we tried very hard to offload this year but on a number of occasions he dug his heels in and said no way.He'll be on big dollars next year but that will be it for him.Club won't resign him.

    Stanley deserved another yr... Couldn't fault his effort in the games he played and could have been a handy back up...

    Why would a professional athlete who gets trained for free in preseason pay to join F45?

    The clubs medical staff including the physiotherapists are thought to be devastated . They will miss Chase and his extended recovery periods dearly.

    Eastwood really peaked that 2012 season, he was a proper lock, could offload, pass and tackle. Decent bloke as well, but its time for him to hang them up.


    Talking about players in that 2012 pack, I would've loved to see Franky have one last season with us, even if he was just playing reserve grade and was more of a mentor for the younger blokes, the guys spirit is insane, also had the pleasure of working out with at F45 alongside Eastwood and let me tell you what there isn't another person that could put a smile on everyone's faces during a high-intensity workout. He cheers everyone on and is really down to earth. Would love to see him get some sort of off-field role next year when he retires.


    Btw when I asked him he said he signed a one-year extension with Parra.

    Franky and Des had a falling out (another Des masterstroke) resulting in franky being moved on. He loves the club and I’m sure would want to be around and part of it after he’s done with Parra

    Heart issue pauses Eastwood’s pre-season

    Canterbury have sent Greg Eastwood for specialist tests, with the veteran forward suffering from an irregular heart beat.

    Eastwood has sat-out pre-season training for the past fortnight, after suffering dizzy spells and faintness.

    The 30-year-old will undergo a minor medical procedure on Monday, which the Bulldogs hope will return his heart rhythm back to normal.

    If successful, the procedure should enable Eastwood to resume training this week.

    The health scare is the latest setback for the Kiwi International, who missed the back end of 2017 because of complications from a knee injury he suffered in June.

    Eastwood is one of several Bulldogs stalwarts who’ll be playing for a new contract in 2018

    Long Q-T interval I suspect.

    Copying @TANK 2.0 with mini-turbo procedure.
