CUDGEWA coach Brayden Carey has been reappointed.
Carey has the Blues sitting on top of the ladder after nine rounds in his first year at the helm and didn't hesitate signing on for another 12 months.
"It's all been good so far," Carey said.
"I've really enjoyed it, it's a good family club.
"We're tracking alright as well so that always helps."
While Carey admits the unevenness of the competition had been an eye-opener, he said Tumbarumba had shown the wheel can turn quickly in the Upper Murray.
"I'm hoping it can pick up," the former Beechworth player said.
"You don't like to see clubs struggling."
Cudgewa and Bullioh are odds-on to play-off in this year's grand final with Tumbarumba a distant third on the ladder.
But Carey said he was looking no further than Saturday's clash against Federal.
"Even though Federal lost last Saturday, they weren't far off and look to have a few players back," he said.
Cudgewa is set to regain Ethan Riddington and Ryan Mee but will be without Dayne Carey and David Low.
Bullioh host Tumbarumba.
The Bulldogs had 59 scoring shots last weekend and Ash Murray, Hamish Clark and Aaron Gordon should prove matchwinners.
