Roos forward trio work well in first win
FOR the first time this season, Hamilton Kangaroos forward system worked with Josh Pepper, Hugh Douglas and Darcy Russell combining for 10 goals.
Not surprising, it coincided with the team’s first win.
Josh Pepper kicked five majors, while Douglas snared three and Russell two.
In 2017, Pepper was a lone ranger for the Kangaroos, a backman-come-forward, he kicked 47 goals and was named as a forward in the Hampden team of the year.
Off-season recruiting saw the return of Douglas, and the key signing of Russell, while Charlie Nield, who kicked 60 goals for Hawkesdale-Macarthur last season, looked to be the icing on the cake.
