Beast blows up amid Klemmer drama


//

Former Bulldogs player Greg Eastwood has hit back at a report unfavourably comparing him to superstar ex-teammate David Klemmer.

The report, by the Daily Telegraph's Phil Rothfield, claimed that part of the reason for Klemmer wanting to quit the Bulldogs was his poor salary compared to "lowly regarded teammate" Eastwood. The report said that Klemmer earned just over $400,000 at Canterbury in 2018, compared to $800,000 for Eastwood in a heavily back-ended deal.

Rothfield cited playing statistics that he claimed made the pay discrepancy "outrageous". Eastwood was not happy, also referring to a "big pay cut".

Eastwood battled serious health problems last season and ended the campaign with the Bulldogs' NSW Cup team. His time with the club has now come to an end, after 144 games over eight seasons.

Klemmer, meanwhile, is trying to quit the last two years of his Bulldogs contract in order to join Newcastle on a reported four-year, $4.6 million deal. The move would make him one of the highest-paid forwards in rugby league history, and follows another attempt to quit the Bulldogs earlier this year.

The Bulldogs have been embroiled in salary cap trouble and lost one of Klemmer's best mates, Aaron Woods, to Cronulla during this season. Canterbury are also facing speculation that five-eighth Kieran Foran may reunite with former coach Des Hasler at Manly.
