COROWA-Rutherglen has further bolstered its midfield stocks with Bairnsdale centreman Russell Cowan signing with the Roos.
Cowan, who was the Gippsland league's best player in its inter-league loss to Central Murray this season, will form part of a new-look midfield at John Foord Oval alongside brothers Damien and Cam Wilson.
Corowa-Rutherglen coach Marc Almond said Cowan had the ability to play inside and outside.
"He's really hard at it and will be a good fit," Almond said.
"We've spoken to a lot of people down that way and they all say he's a good player.
"We think he has a lot to offer.
"We needed to add quality through the midfield and up forward and, with the Wilsons and Russell Cowan coming on board and Rohan Davies having a really good back half of last season, things are coming along well."
Cowan is a former teammate of Corowa-Rutherglen signing and star forward Damian Cupido.
The 30-year-old has won a league best and fairest in the Yarra Glen league and is a long-time inter-league representative.
He has won multiple best and fairests throughout his career.
