Premiership contender Wangaratta Rovers has conceded star recruit Tyler Roos is a week to week proposition after a scintillating display for North Melbourne in the VFL on the weekend.
Roos was named as the Kangaroos best in his VFL debut against Frankston.
The in-form midfielder racked-up 43 possessions to earn the praise of coach Leigh Adams.
"Tyler had a good day and was clearly our best player - our work-rate as a whole midfield group probably wasn't up to standard, which probably made him stand out even more," Adams said.
Roos earnt a call-up after several strong performances for the Rovers during the opening month.
The midfield dynamo has been instrumental in the Hawks' 3-1 start to the season.
The stellar start includes the prized scalps of reigning premier Lavington and flag favourite Wangaratta.
In a major coup for the Hawks, Roos' father, Paul, has also assisted coach Daryn Cresswell on match day in all four matches.
Football manager Barry Sullivan said it remained uncertain whether Roos would play the minimum nine matches required for VFL listed players to qualify for September action.

"By all reports Tyler got a heap of the footy for North Melbourne last week and you'd be surprised if he didn't get picked again," Sullivan said.
"He has been in terrific form so far this season and it just shows that good form in the O&M is regarded highly by the VFL clubs.
"Obviously we would love to have Tyler playing for us full-time.
"We don't mind having his dad helping out in the coaches box either.
"But at the end of the day we want what is best for Tyler and his development.
"I'm not 100 percent sure what his plans are but I do know he has enjoyed his time at Rovers so far.
"Hopefully he plays enough games during the season and is playing with us when it counts most during September."
Roos is a four point player for Rovers who alongside Albury are under the most points pressure.
The Rovers have had a maximum of 40 points twice and 39 in their other two.
