A HANDFUL of former and present Ovens and Murray players have been selected to play in the AFL Riverina Championship's opening round on Saturday.
Albury midfielders Jake Gaynor and James Grills will line-up for Wagga Tigers against Osborne at Robertson Oval.
Gaynor will be returning to his home club while Holbrook-product Grills is making his debut.
Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong have named former Wodonga Raiders defender Matt Neagle at half-back while Wangaratta Rovers' tall Nick Murray will take his place at centre half-forward against Turvey Park.
Murray was set to play for Williamstown before the VFL season was called off.
Leeton-Whitton has picked former Lavington defender Jono Spina and Corowa-Rutherglen's Chris Willis returns to MCUE when the teams meet at Mangoplah.
Meanwhile, Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong are preparing to be without star ruckman Jacob Olsson for the season due to COVID-19 concerns.
