IF Wednesday night's Mid West meeting determines that teams can allow Group 10 players in their squads then the Oberon Tigers aren't going to be looking out of the town for talent.
When the Tigers announced they would be stepping back from Group 10 to take part in the Mid West competition it saw some of their leading players make the tough decision to join other clubs in 2020.
But could those players be making their return to the club after only a handful of pre-season games in different colours?
Tigers' Dallas Booth has made a commitment that the club won't be asking players to travel to Oberon to be part of the club and will instead keep their focus local.
"As far as we're concerned, we're not interested in having any Group 10 players other than those in Oberon," he said.
"Obviously there are a couple of good players in Oberon who have played first grade before and should the opportunity come that they'd be allowed to play for us then we'd definitely be interested in that.
"Regardless of what Group 10 decides, we don't want to bring in any players who don't live in Oberon.
"Hopefully Group 10 will take into account the fact that they've played in Oberon their whole lives and I'm sure they'll talk about that."
While not listing names, one of those potential returners could be Jackson Brien, who linked up with St Pat's for the Group 10 premier league season.
Blake Fitzpatrick is another Oberon local who linked up with the Saints for their premier league campaign and could make a return to the team depending on the decision.
The decision in Wednesday night's meeting could have an impact on Oberon's numbers.
Those numbers already took a hit across the course of the year for various reasons, and it would be a welcome boost for the Tigers to bring back several of their former stars.
As the team gets set for training Booth said there's still a competitive squad on hand for the season to come but he would welcome the additional help.
"At the start of the year we had really good numbers but some guys have had to change shifts due to COVID and ...a couple of guys have hurt themselves in non-footy related injuries and others have lost interest as the year's gone on," he said.
"To be fair, a lot of those guys who lost interest hadn't played before or hadn't played for a while, and because of that they're giving it a miss.
"We're still happy with the numbers we've got and hopefully it will lead to a good turnout at training."
