The 2015 Tigers’ best and fairest will join the Perth Football League C2-Grade club in May for two games, before planning to return to the club to play out five total matches and qualify for the competition’s finals series.
Ellard, a close friend to Rance, played 63 matches for the Blues between 2008-2015 and has returned to his junior club, where he played alongside Rance.
Rance decided to leave the Tigers at the end of the 2019 season, concluding his 200-game career in the yellow and black where he won five All-Australian selections.
A 200-game career forged against the competition's best forwards.
