HAMILTON Kangaroos hope a training regime tweak will help them climb up the Hampden league ladder.
The Gerard FitzGerald-coached Roos will swap training nights, starting this week.
FitzGerald, speaking after their 13.9 (87) to 6.12 (48) triumph against winless Cobden on Saturday, said the club discussed ways to improve after its sluggish form before the league-wide bye.
Monday and Wednesday nights had been their training nights. They will now swap to Tuesdays and Thursdays.

"We have had a really interesting fortnight at the club where we sat down and asked for feedback with where the players thought we were at," he said.
"It led us towards making some changes to the way we're going to go about things between now and the next bye.
"We're going to an individual or small group-based recovery option between Sunday and Monday nights, a heavy emphasis on touch and skills on a Tuesday and my game sense training and instructions on how I want the team to play on Thursdays."
The Kangaroos' tall timber was integral against the Bombers with Darcy Russell and Hugh Douglas kicking three goals each and ruckman Levi Dare among the best.
FitzGerald said the Roos, who improved their win-loss record to 2-3, recorded themselves as having 49 inside 50s to Cobden's 32.
"There's been times where our tall players have had a good impact (in previous games)," he said.
"They were terrific against Port Fairy, particularly in the first quarter, and we had patches against Terang.
"We had the ball forward of centre more today and inside 50 more than we have been so our forwards got better supply and I thought they capitalised on some very good ball movement."
Cobden remains the only winless side after five rounds.
