Coolamon have welcomed Temora premiership player Luke Gerhard back to the club.
Gerhard is the latest addition to a Coolamon squad that is building nicely ahead of the 2020 season.
Gerhard spent two seasons at Coolamon in 2015-16 but then returned to his home club Temora for the past three years, where he has been assistant coach for the last two.
The 29-year-old said the travel from Wagga to Temora, now with a young family, prompted the move to Coolamon.
"We've had the young fella (Harry) and the missus (Kiralee) was keen to play netball again," Gerhard said.
"It wasn't going to work with her finishing work at five and having to be at footy training at six and looking after Harry as well.
"Her parents still live in Coolamon, which helps, and we've been at the club before, kept in touch with them and have a fair few close mates there.
"It's a very similar club to Temora so I thought why not. If it means spending more time with the young fella and helping out then why not do it."
Gerhard admitted it was a difficult decision to leave Temora again but only did so after a conversation with his dad, Peter, who has been president of the Kangaroos for the past three years.
"It was a hard call, especially talking to the old man about it and I ummed and arred for a while," he said.
"Dad said it's up to you and if it's going to be better for you, then do it. So for him to say that made my mind up and so far everyone at Temora has been pretty understanding about it, which is good."
Gerhard, who predominantly plays across half-forward, is Coolamon's second recruit of the off-season after welcoming back Marshal Macauley.
Gerhard lived next door to Coolamon co-coach Jake Barrett in Temora and said his appointment also was a factor in his decision.
He also added that he is looking forward to playing alongside a number of the club's promising teenagers, who were in juniors the last time he was at Coolamon.
"To see them grow after a full season under their belt will be pretty exciting."
