This is by no means an earth shattering announcement but former North Ballarat Rebel, Brad Hartigan, has signed to play with the Roosters. Reported by the Wimmera Mail-Times, Hartigan was a premiership player with Horsham in the Wimmera FL last season. His father is the Horsham chairman and I'm sure he is a cousin of Brent Hartigan at Richmond. He joins a group of three or four other players from the Rebels who have committed to the Roosters for 2006. I'll dig through some old papers to find those players names.
