THE Hamilton Kangaroos had their first hit out of 2021, taking on Sebastopol on Saturday.
While the Kangaroos went down on the scoreboard, it was an important game for the group to build up match fitness and test out structures against another team.
Kangaroos coach, Gerard FitzGerald said the clash against the Ballarat Football League team helped battle harden the blue and white ahead of its 2021 Hampden Football Netball League campaign.
“I don’t know if I was looking for happiness, I just wanted a hit out against a really well organised team,” he said.
“I know the Sebastopol team well… and I thought it would be good for our blokes to play against a well organised team which is in contention in another major league.”
