A new club will join Group 16 rugby league next year after they were accepted into the competition at the Group's Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Sunday.
After 30 years out of the competition, the Candelo Bemboka Panthers will re-enter Group 16 in 2014 and strengthen the competition.
The other big change at the AGM was the appointment of a new president and vice president.
After 13 years at the helm, Russell Fitzpatrick retired as president and Dean Lynch was elected to the position unopposed.
Mr Lynch praised the outgoing president.
"Russell has been the president of Group 16 for the past 13 years and has been the face of Rugby League in the south east," he said.
Mr Fitzpatrick said he hoped to still be involved with Country Rugby League through being a CRL Junior selector.
Newly elected to the committee is John Cornell and Don Wilson.
Mr Cornell was a driving force behind this year's Grand Final win by the Moruya Sharks and was elected vice president while Mr Wilson has been a part of the Eden Tigers for many years and was elected junior vice president.
The treasurer and secretary remained unchanged with Louise Lynch and Annie Brown respectively re- elected into their former roles.
