    Sad to see the big fella go, but what a way to leave the club.

    Has been superb in past few months.

    Farewell Greg Eastwood..... NSW Cup Premier AND State Champion !!

    He copped a lot from the fans late in his career, but he gave us many great years. He was never all that quick, but his ability to read when a short pass was on and to break through a bunch of defenders made him one of my favorite players for a long time. It's a shame he didn't get to spend the full season in the NRL after his heart surgey. But I wish him all the best with whatever comes next. He hasn't confirmed that he's retiring as far as I know, but I've not heard that he's signed up elsewhere either. Thanks for the memories Beast.

    I would really love to see him saddle up again next year and knowing him he would probably do so as an Intrust player and not feel belittled by it or offended. Health may be a consideration though.

    Great player for the club over the years.
    Injury and fitness caught up with him but his commitment could never be questioned.
    Great way to finish his playing career with the club.

    Good luck to him.. was a beast early in his career but was a mistake to tie up salary cap in him post around 2014

    A few years ago my husband was asked to be part of the guard of honour at a Dogs vs. Sharks game at ANZ as a reward for attending all games that season.

    He was rapt to be wearing the number 10 which was Beast's designated jersey that day. After the game back at the League's club he was able to get Greg to sign it...now one of his framed jerseys which he will put in his man cave once it is completed.

    Beast is a champion and will always be a Bulldog....

    Was a game changer when he came on but I think he lost a lot of confidence after his health issues

    Still remember how long it took beasty to get to the try line looked slow motion lol also his intercept on Thurston's pass against the cows at Belmore was great and add to that the one against Melb in 2014 finals(intercepted by Greg Inglis as ray Warren said lol) he was fun to watch in open space the beast and real likeable bloke outside of footy always had time for a chat. Will be sorely missed around our club
