Bulldogs forward Greg Eastwood has been added to the Kiwis' Four Nations training squad after his side was eliminated from NRL finals contention.

Eastwood, 29, has played 24 Tests for New Zealand after making his debut in 2007.

His Bulldogs side were knocked out of the finals after losing 28-12 to the Panthers on Sunday.

An additional 12 players will be named for the train-on squad after their sides are eliminated from the premiership hunt, with a final squad of 24 to be announced on October 10.

The Kiwis are yet to confirm a new coach for the Test series in England after incumbent Stephen Kearney resigned to join the Warriors on a three-year deal on Tuesday.
