Two beloved premiership heroes at the Batemans Bay Seahawks brought up a century of games in the club's first home game of the season.
2018 premiership coach Michael Kenny and premiership vice captain Josh Visser both played their 100th first-grade games with the Seahawks in a 80-point win over the Belconnen Magpies at Hanging Rock Oval.
Kenny, usually a defender, even snagged himself a goal in the win that sees the team remain unblemished at 2-0.
Visser also had opportunities to kick a major, but unfortunately missed a set shot in the third quarter and chose to hit the top of the square while running through 50 in the last.
Before the game, Kenny said he joined the Seahawks in 2013 after playing almost 140 first-grade games in Gundagai.
"I was just a player for the first three years, then I started in the coaching role in 2016," he said.
"I was saying to the boys that I've been privileged enough to play 100 games and win a premiership along the way, but the thing that matters most to me is the mateship.
"This'll be my ninth season here, and I've made mates I'll have for the rest of my life.
"Games and premierships will come and go, but your mates last forever."
26-year-old Visser started playing under 17s with the Seahawks, and made his first-grade debut in 2013 alongside Kenny.
"I've moved to Canberra for university (since then), and stayed up there when I got a job," he said.
"Now that Batemans Bay is playing in the Canberra comp, it's so good that I can keep playing for my home club."
Visser said the 2018 premiership stands out as his best memory in his 100 games.
"I do love travelling down for games and seeing all my friends and family that are still here," he said.
"I'll keep playing first-grade here until I can't anymore."
Coach Kenny has planned to step down from first-grade football several times since the 2018 premiership, but now says he'll "never say never".
"We built 2019 up as my last year, but the way we went out (in a prelim), I just thought it probably wasn't the best year I had as a coach or player," he said.
"Last year was going to be it, but that obviously didn't happen with COVID, so we'll never say never."
On the field, Ross Hummel kicked seven goals and Jarrod Thompson kicked four goals in the win, while the women's side also had a 48-point win.
