Temora coach Chris Wallace is hoping a new front rower can bring plenty of aggression to the side.
The Dragons secured an early Christmas gift with Luke Skidmore signing on.
Skidmore has returned home to his junior club after three seasons in Canberra.
He left Temora after playing Weissel Cup to become part of the Raiders feeder system before spending the past two seasons with Gunghalin in the Canberra Raiders Cup.
Wallace is looking forward to having him in the side.
"We've been very careful with the blokes we are trying to get to the club and thought Luke being an ex-local fit the bill as to what we needed," Wallace said.
"It was ideal."
The new coach believes Skidmore will be the perfect fit in the front row with the young side.
"With our backs, Sammy Elwin, Jock Ward and Hamish Starr, we wanted a young, aggressive forward more so than an older head," Wallace said.
"We needed someone who can give those boys a lot of confidence and get us on the front foot.
"They are the sort of blokes we've been aiming for - someone with a bit more flair."
The Dragons aren't expecting too many changes from the team who finished seventh last season.
They had a horror end to the year, losing seven of their last nines games after sitting in fifth at the midway point of the year.
Their only confirmed loss is Joe Leggatt, who is returning to Brothers after making a mid-season move from the Wagga club.
However there is some doubt whether Papua New Guinea recruits Sipa Korken and Joshua Nani will be needed.
"They are in the pipeline," Wallace said.
"If we can get Australian we won't have to go down that path but they are there ready to go in February if we need them."
An Papua New Guinean centre is also another option.
Wallace is still looking to attract another forward to the club.
Especially with Zach Starr to miss the first five rounds after being handed a nine-game ban for high tackle last season.
"We probably need one more front rower, or forward, as Zach Starr is going to miss the first five rounds," Wallace said.
"We have to accommodate for that but once he comes back we should be looking pretty good."
