HAMILTON KANGAROOS senior coach, Jarrod Holt, cannot wait for the Hampden Football Netball League to begin on April 5, and will use today’s Boags Draught Cup in Port Fairy to work on some of the plans which he hopes will propel his team up the ladder.

“We’ll expose them to senior footy which will bring them on a bit and also we can see which of the Under 18 players might be pushing for seniors footy during the year.
