OSBORNE and Brock-Burrum are set to have key players missing in their 2019 grand final replay at Brocklesby on Saturday.
The Tigers will be without exciting forward Jed Griffin with an infected foot suffered during a practice match against Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong.
He is set to miss at least two matches.
Brock-Burrum has reached a standstill in its bid to have full-forward Damian Cupido cleared from Corowa-Rutherglen.
It remains to be seen if a deal can be struck in the next 48 hours.
Meanwhile, Howlong coach David Miles will line-up for his first match for the Spiders since playing under-17s in 2004 when his side meets Rand-Walbundrie-Walla at Rand.
"It was a long time ago but Chris Van Zanten played and he's still running around," Miles said.
CDHBU will unveil two of its best recruits in John Pratt and Joshua Holding when they travel to Lockhart.
