ROOS TO REBELS
HAMILTON footballers Harry Waters, Kobi Walter and James Cleaver have been selected in the Greater Western Victoria Rebels squad for the 2019 season.
The final squad of 42 was announced on Wednesday with the Hampden league well represented in the group, with Cleaver returning for his second year in the system, as one of three 19-year-olds listed.
The Hamilton Kangaroos players will travel to Ballarat each Thursday for training with Cleaver moving to the Rebels’ hub city to take up an internship with the club this year.
The trio played multiple practice matches during the selection process along with weekly training sessions that started before Christmas.
