Albury blew away the double-barrelled bye cobwebs by playing a mid-year scratch match on Saturday.
The Ovens and Murray Football League season has been put on hold for a fortnight following last week's COVID lockdown of Victoria until this Thursday night.
Albury had already had two weeks off and with play not set to resume until June 12, it would have meant the Tigers went five weeks without a game since maintaining their undefeated run against Lavington on May 8.
"We saw it as a good opportunity to get some match simulation for the players," Albury co-coach Luke Daly suggested.

"We just tried to get even game time into 44 blokes and we got through unscathed, which is also good.
