COROWA-Rutherglen has bolstered its midfield brigade by signing Collingullie Glenfield Park premiership player Matt Klemke.
Klemke will make his debut against Albury at the Albury Sportsground on Saturday as the Roos look to back-up last weekend's thrilling win against Wodonga.
The tough midfielder played with his brothers, Jayden and Ben, at AFL Sydney club Inner West Magpies last year and previously spent time with Canberra Demons in the NEAFL.
Klemke said he was looking forward to his first taste of Ovens and Murray football.
"It's a great family club," Klemke, 23, said.
"I had a training run down there last year when I was playing in Sydney and loved every minute of it.
"I know Jarred Lane, Hayden Filliponi, Jordy Lavis and a few of the boys and I'm just looking forward to getting out there after watching them play last weekend."
Klemke said Roo coach Peter German was another reason why he opted to play at John Foord Oval.
"Obviously Corowa-Rutherglen has appointed 'Germo' (Peter German) and his knowledge of football was a big thing for me," he said.
"That will be huge learning off him."
Corowa-Rutherglen head of football Craig Spencer said Klemke would add another dimension to the side.
"He's going to be a really handy pick up," Spencer said.
"Matty's come home to the farm and he's attracted to what we are doing.
"It was important that our four onballers stood up against Wodonga and Matt will add another string to that bow."
