Eales spent much of his early years at Geelong in the seconds, after coming to the club from Hamilton. He was a member of Geelong's 1963 and 1964 reserves premierships. It wasn't until 1966 that he was regularly picked in the seniors, playing 18 of a possible 19 VFL games that year followed by all 21 in 1967. He often played as a wingman or rover, but was on a half forward flank in the 1967 VFL Grand Final, which Geelong lost to Richmond.

Once he left Geelong he went on to become a coach in country football. He had his first assignment at Stawell and was also senior coach of Cranbourne.
