Saintly brothers team up

FOR the first time since the Mallee Football League ended in 2015, Josh and Luke Coates will run out on the same football field today.

The pair will don the red, white and black of Bambill after last playing together for Walpeup-Underbool (who merged with Ouyen United and now play in the SFNL) in the old Mallee league.
