Home-grown player Caruana Smith returns for Hotsticks and will feature with the team in the upcoming Knock-Out competition. Together with his cousin Imbroll and team captain Scicluna, Caruana Smith is the only active player from the squad that won the National League title in 1996/97 and his experience will help Hotsticks to challenge for the close-of-season cup.
Hotsticks have also recruited dutch player Jesse Nouwens who will team up with Rasterhoff. Though both newcomers are not in top form they will certainly add the much-needed experience to the squad.
Following a season marked by serious injuries the side is now looking forward to a good performance in the Knock-Out competition.
