McClennan welcomes Eastwood decision

Leeds Rhinos Head Coach Brian McClennan has welcomed the news that Greg Eastwood has been granted permission to move to the UK.

McClennan, who has worked with Eastwood when he was national coach of the New Zealand, is excited about bringing in the World Cup winner next season

He commented, “Greg will be a great addition to our squad in 2010. He is having a really good season with the Canterbury Bulldogs this season but he is really happy to have his future sorted. It was important that we were able to get him playing with the Bulldogs this season because he loves to play his sport. But I know he is looking forward to being a Rhino from 2010 and onwards and we can not wait to have him here.

“There has been a lot of hard work done by people at the club and others on behalf of the club and this is a great reward for their efforts,” added McClennan.
