Albury recruit Lachie Taylor-Nugent is set to play a one-off match for home club Jerilderie.
Jerilderie lodged a clearance for Taylor-Nugent last week fuelling speculation that the athletic tall wanted to depart Albury Sportsground.
Rumours had been circulating that Taylor-Nugent was disgruntled about playing in the reserves due to points pressure.
Tigers' officials knocked back the clearance with Taylor-Nugent playing in the reserves against Lavington.
Albury co-coach Luke Daly revealed the Tigers will clear Taylor-Nugent to his junior club this week for a one-off appearance.
"Lachie wants to play a one-off match with his home club Jerilderie this weekend," Daly said.
"Jerilderie put the clearance in too early last week, hence why it was knocked back.
"We are happy to clear him this week though after we transferred our round seven clash with Yarrawonga to the start the season.
"Lachie just thought it would be a good opportunity to play with his home club and get to play alongside some of his old mates.
"Obviously he has also got a family connection out there as well."
