Coleambally veteran Shane Pound will join Damian Mannes at the top of the club's honour roll of senior games played on Saturday, when he runs out for his 333rd first grade game.
Pound played his 300th against Marrar in 2015 and the 2005 premiership-winning captain, Blues life member and multiple best-and-fairest winner has proven an ageless champion, donning the boots in six more games this year to put him on the verge of the record-equalling achievement.
Pound also, memorably, was the man who booted the Blues into their most recent grand final, steering them to victory in golden point extra time against the Northern Jets in the 2016 preliminary final, aged 38.
His significant game is against Marrar again and the competition leaders head to Coleambally without a trio of forwards, with James Lawton, Dayne Hancock and Rhys Mooney all out.
Elsewhere, North Wagga have dropped forward Josh Campbell for their game against Charles Sturt University, despite losing Daniel Jordan to injury for the season.
And the Northern Jets head to Temora without Chris Bell as well as Mitch Haddrill.
They did attempt to get Max Harper's student permit extended, without success. Harper has played the last two games for the Jets, on permit while home from Wollongong and his longer term availability may be determined next week.
East Wagga-Kooringal welcome back a couple of returns from injury but are still without forwards Jarrad Boumann and Nick Hull.
