Dylan Roberton was lucky to escape with every part of his anatomy intact after a freak incident yesterday.

A harmless game of indoor cricket after training has turned to pain for Roberton with the defender copping a blow to the groin.

In a somewhat unbelievable accident, Roberton was felled by a tennis ball, requiring a trip to hospital to repair the damage.

General Manager of Football Performance Jamie Cox said he was both very lucky, yet unlucky at the same time.

“To cop such a blow in a harmless game of cricket is very unlucky, but thankfully, he’s okay and will be back on his feet in the next few days.”

“Dylan has returned to pre-season training in fantastic shape, so a short break won’t hold him back for too long.”

When you misjudge a @shanesavage05 slower ball. 🏏 🥜 #bowlingshane
