Forward-turned-defender Hamp reaches 100 with Tigers

Friday, June 16, 2017 - 3:00 PM - by Chris Pike

The problem was when he was receiving his first chances in 2011 and 2012, it was a dominant Claremont team and that was nowhere more so than in a forward-line that included Chad Jones, Beau Maister, Tom Lee, Paul Medhurst, Ian Richardson and Gerrick Weedon.
