North Albury has replaced two of its taller timber by signing fringe Albury and Thurgoona senior players.
Tristan Mann played eight games with Albury last season, while Harry Tooney had 11 appearances for the Tallangatta and District outfit.
“Opportunity was part of the decision, North Albury is the best opportunity for me moving forward, I’m pretty excited” Mann said.
The 19-year-old is 197cms, while Tooney is also 190-plus.
“Harry’s coming across as a half-forward, winger, we’re hoping to whack another five or six kilos on his upper body and expose teams with his height across the wing,” coach Isaac Muller said of the former Bulldog.
“(Former co-coach Chris Schmidt) ‘Schmidty’ was six-two, six-three, and ‘Les’ (former star Dan Leslie) was a big man as well, so we’ve had to go out and get a bit more height.
“(Ruckman) John Willis did his ACL, so the likelihood of him returning this season is pretty minimal.”
