Corowa-Rutherglen has kick-started another off-season with a handful of early signings.
Big man Jesse Johnston and former player Callum Spencer are the first of what's expected to be a number of recruits.
Spencer is returning from a year off, while Johnston spent last season with Howlong after stints at Thurgoona, North Albury and Murray Magpies.
"Jesse will bring the bigger body and have a presence, while he's also versatile so we can swing him from either end (defence or attack)," Roos' head of football Craig Spencer suggested.
The 199cm Johnston finished runner-up in the Hume League's Azzi Medal in 2016 and Spencer admits the club has specifically set out to match taller forward lines, such as Wangaratta.
Meanwhile, 20-year-old Spencer has also grown since last playing with the club in 2019.
"Callum will be a tall running backman, who can rebound well, which is what we need next season, someone who can drive it into our forward line," Spencer said of his nephew.
The Roos won five of the 13 games last season, matching the output from the previous four seasons on the back of strong recruiting.

"It's good for us that players want to come here, they're saying we want to be part of what you're doing," Spencer offered.
