Wangaratta Rovers could unveil another of their VFL players in Saturday's away game against North Albury.
Former Sydney University best and fairest Ryan Hebron has been named as an emergency.
"He's very versatile, he can play either key forward or key back, when he was at Werribee (in 2019) he played mainly in defence," Wangaratta Rovers' football operations manage Barry Sullivan said.
Hebron came through the Sydney Swans Academy, winning the Uni's Driscoll Medal in 2018, before joining the VFL's Tigers.
He's now back with the Swans' VFL.
Meanwhile in a massive boost for the club's chances this season, emerging ruckman Ed Dayman plays his first game after an ankle injury kept him out of the first two matches.
He replaces veteran Shane Gaston, who's nursing a hip complaint.
