Beck O'Connell will be back on court as a Roo this season, just in a different league.
The Toni Wilson Medallist has joined Tallangatta and District League side Yackandandah.
O'Connell said connections at the club had led to the decision to make the switch.
"It's pretty exciting that there's so many unknowns moving to a league you haven't played for," O'Connell said.
"It's a similar feeling to when I went out to the Hume League."
The Roos have also been strengthened by the return of star Ovens and Murray goal shooter Jess Garland (nee Fisher-Curnow).

"I'm super excited to be able to play with her," O'Connell said.
"She's just so strong and such a phenomenal player."
O'Connell is set to be a mentor in the midcourt.
"It's something I'm passionate about and feel like I can contribute to the club in that way," she said.
O'Connell coached Billabong Crows to an A-grade Hume League flag in 2018 before playing in a B-grade premiership with Corowa-Rutherglen in 2019.
The Tallangatta and District League will make their long-awaited return this weekend, with Yackandandah set to take on Dederang-Mt Beauty.
