Hollands, who played in the 1995 Teal Cup for New South Wales, was initially recruited by the Sydney Swans, from his club North Albury. He played only reserves football for Sydney. In 1998, Richmond added Hollands to their rookie list and the following year he was promoted to the senior list, playing eight AFL games that season. His most memorable game was a one-point win over Fremantle at Subiaco Oval, as Hollands kicked the winning goal, with just seconds remaining. He was rookie listed by Port Adelaide in 2001 but didn't make any AFL appearances for the club.
Hollands played a total of 101 games for West Adelaide in the SANFL from 2000 to 2008. He won the Steve Hamra Medal in 2001 and was a dual Fos Williams Medal winner, in 2001 and 2002, for performances against Victoria.
