If they can carry that form on to the Bulldogs both will be great signings.

[INDENT]Dear Michael Rowdy,

Thank you for your enquiry and for your ongoing support for the Bulldogs.

Greg had surgery on both wrists prior to Christmas to realign two previous fractures sustained whilst playing for NZ and Leeds.

The surgery was successful and he’ll be in plaster until the start of February. At that point, he will have scans which will give us a more definitive idea of his progress.

Our medical staff are very confident and optimistic that we’ll have Greg back on the field in the early part of the NRL season.

Again, thank you for your enquiry and for your support.


Regards,
Bulldogs

Bulldogs recruits battling on injury front
Josh Rakic
January 16, 2011

CANTERBURY star recruit Greg Eastwood will miss at least the opening two weeks of the NRL season after having surgery on both wrists.

The 23-year-old New Zealand international had several pins inserted in his hands before Christmas.

He will be in plaster until February before beginning a rehabilitation regimen that could result in his missing more than a month of football, reports say.

Bulldogs chief executive Todd Greenberg conceded his club's major signing would miss some matches but remained optimistic about the duration of his recovery.

''Greg had surgery on both wrists prior to Christmas and it was to realign two previous fractures that he sustained while playing for New Zealand and Leeds, '' Greenberg said.

The surgery came as a shock to both Greenberg and coach Kevin Moore, who did not know the back-rower needed surgery when the club signed him to a two-year deal.

And after the woeful 2010 performance that followed their watershed 2009 season, the Bulldogs will need the likes of Eastwood on the park as often as possible if they are to return to the NRL's top eight.

''We weren't aware of the injury when we signed him, no,'' Greenberg conceded. ''And he certainly wasn't aware of it - you certainly wouldn't have known he was sore by the way he was playing.

''It was corrective surgery. He's had pins in there previously but there was an issue how they were inserted.

''Once he's out of the plaster they have to make sure that the pins have realigned themselves.

''We're optimistic.''

Meanwhile, fellow star signing and Kiwi international Frank Pritchard is also fighting to be fit for round one after an extended off-season.

The former Panthers cult figure is said to be struggling with fitness and leg injuries but Greenberg said the back-rower, one of the NRL's highest-paid forwards, would make his debut with fellow recruits Aiden Tolman, Kris Keating and Trent Hodkinson.

''I think blokes his size will always struggle with some niggling injuries but he's getting better and he should be ready for round one,'' Greenberg said. ''Frankie had a fair bit of time off but I think our goal for Frankie is to get more out of him on a week-to-week basis.''

Greenberg said skipper Andrew Ryan had bounced back from ankle and shoulder surgery, and fullback Ben Barba was fitter than ever.

PRODIGAL son Greg Eastwood's much-hyped return to the Bulldogs has turned into a nightmare, with the Kiwi Four Nations hero having both his hands placed in plaster following delicate surgery.

Eastwood needed operations on both his wrists last month and will miss up to 10 weeks of the new season in a major blow to the Bulldogs.

One of the stars of the Kiwis' win against Australia late last year, Eastwood complained of soreness in his arms when he started training with the Bulldogs last month.

Eastwood broke his left scaphoid bone playing for the Kiwis in 2009 and his right playing for Leeds last March.

X-rays showed that both wrist injuries - despite operations at the time - had failed to heal properly.

Eastwood could have played on with the problems but would have risked further complications this season and arthritis later in life.

"It was a tough situation for Greg but we opted to go for the surgery," Bulldogs chief executive Todd Greenberg said.

"The surgeons re-aligned the two previous fractures and because we got it early, we are hopeful he will be back not too long into the new season. "We will re-assess things once the plaster comes off, but we are hopeful he will only miss the first six weeks or so of the new season."

The luckless Eastwood underwent a 3 1/2-hour operation on the left wrist on December 22 and a further 2 1/2 hours' surgery on the right wrist seven days later.

To add to his woes, Eastwood now faces the frustration of struggling to do everyday tasks, with both his hands covered in plaster.

"He is fortunate to have a loving partner in Ashleigh and she is looking after him very well," a Bulldogs insider said.

"It is a tough break for the kid, but he is just looking ahead to when he can get back on the field."

Eastwood proved the accidental hero of the Bulldogs' charge to within a game of the grand final in 2009.

The 23-year-old Kiwi originally signed to play with English club Leeds that year and only visa problems saw him join the Bulldogs.

Eastwood made the most of the late change, playing 23 games as the Bulldogs made a stunning charge for the title after finishing with the wooden spoon the previous year.

The ball-playing utility forward then went to Leeds last season but never settled down in England and announced late last year that he would re-join the Bulldogs.

Eastwood and Frank Pritchard are the two players expected to add strike power to the pack this year.

"Greg is a fine clubman and a top player and despite this setback, we believe he will be great for us," Greenberg said.

I think Eastwood was your best signing so it's a big blow to have him miss out on so many matches so early in the season.

It could have a big impact on the Dogs season.

[INDENT]Greg Eastwood Update
16/01/2011 1:55:41 AM
Bulldogs recruit Greg Eastwood is expected to be back in action in the early rounds of the NRL season after undergoing surgery on both wrists in December.

The surgery was to correct pre-existing issues in both arms, which only came to light after he commenced pre-season training with the Club.

Bulldogs Chief Executive Todd Greenberg says that the decision to operate was made in an attempt to both correct the problem and to limit Eastwood’s absence from the playing roster.

“Greg has surgery before Christmas to re-align two previous fractures,” Greenberg said. “The injuries were originally sustained while playing for New Zealand and with Leeds in the Super League.

“The surgeries to correct the problems were successful, however he’ll be in plaster until early February.

“Once the plaster comes off, Greg will have scans to see how he’s healing and to assess just how long he will be out.

“Our medical staff have been very happy with progress thus far and we’re certainly confident that he’ll be back on the field in the early part of the season.”

Further updates will be posted here at Bulldogs.com.au

Had surgery on both his hands. I guess it's better than it happens now rather than at the business end of the season.

Pritchard's new centre of attention
Joe Barton
January 25, 2011 - 6:04PM

AAP

Canterbury NRL recruit Frank Pritchard is so eager to form a strike partnership with gun centre Josh Morris that he's planning an early return from injury.

Pritchard, who suffered the injury during New Zealand's successful Four Nations campaign last year, had feared he would miss the start of the new season.

But the promise of wreaking havoc on the left-flank with his new club has had the 27-year-old working overtime to be fit ahead of round one's match with the Wests Tigers.
Advertisement: Story continues below

"I'll definitely be fit for round one, and I'm pushing to be available for our last trial match as well," Pritchard told AAP.

"I wasn't looking forward to missing any games for the club.

"I came back to training after the Four Nations and the knee was looking good, then I had a little hiccup at training and I should've got it done before (Christmas) but I put it off and thought I could just play and train through it.

"But they pulled me aside and told me to see a specialist who said it was best to clean it out now, rather than during the season when it would've forced me to miss games which I don't want to do."

For the past four seasons Pritchard struck fear in the hearts of his opponents when he formed a lethal combination on the left flank with Penrith's own livewire centre Michael Jennings.

And now he wants to cause headaches across the NRL with another speedster in Morris, who himself has an enviable offensive partnership with winger Bryson Goodwin.

"Me and Michael (Jennings), we formed a good combination there on the left for a few years, and yeah I'm going to miss him but it's time to adjust," Pritchard said.

"Josh Morris is another strike weapon there, he's pretty quick too.

"I'm just trying to get back on the field as soon as I can and form my combinations with Josh and Bryson on the wing."

Pritchard also revealed that he's likely to be given a roving commission from coach Kevin Moore as he looks to expand his running game.

"It would be good to be able to move around the field more, and try to test teams out on the right side, not just the left," he said.

"I want to open up my game a bit more and change it up a bit."

In a further boost for the Bulldogs, fellow recruit Greg Eastwood revealed his casts could be off as early as next week as he eyes a return against South Sydney in round two.

The burly forward suffered similar injuries at the start of last year, although a botched surgery meant he required another clean-up.

"I had the surgery done before Christmas, I did the same surgery last year and I was back in 11 weeks ... if it's around the same recovery time I shouldn't miss too much of the start," Eastwood explained.

"Maybe one or two (games), hopefully no more than that."
