Greg Eastwood out for rest of Four Nations

6:23 am on 5 November 2009

Utility forward Greg Eastwood has been ruled out of the rest of the Kiwis' Four Nations campaign after breaking a bone in his left hand during last \weekend's record 62-12 win over France in Toulouse.

With an eye injury ruling out the 11-Test international Steve Matai the Kiwis will be without two of their most experienced players for Sunday morning's clash against England in Huddersfield.

Eastwood says the injury happened when he fended off a French player soon after being brought onto the field from the interchange bench in the 25th minute .

The Leeds-bound 22-year-old's expected to be in plaster for six weeks.
