Boggabri prop Nick Millar has moved to fourth spot on the Group 4 best and fairest ladder with a three-point performance on the weekend against Dungowan.
Millar sits four points behind leader Stan Swan but won't be able to bridge the gap any time soon.
"It's unfortunate, we're going to miss him the next three games," Boggy coach Shane Rampling said.
"He's going up north on holidays.
"He was great for us again against Dungowan. Played the full 80 minutes, carried the ball hard and got good quick play the balls."
The coach tried to replace the prop but Millar "waved me off", Rampling said.
"He wanted to put in for us because he knew he was going away," Rampling said.
"We'll miss him for this week's game [against Gunnedah] and the Moree game."
Swan continued his brilliant season for the Moree Boars on the weekend as he polled three points in his side's 26-24 win over Werris Creek.
Swan sits on 11 points, two ahead of Creek co-coach Cody Tickle who picked up two points in the match.
Wedged in between those two players is Narrabri's Dennis Gordon on 10 points. The centre kept pace when he earned the three points in his side's thrilling golden point win over North Tamworth.
Kootingal-Moonbi skipper Ben Williams was the other player to poll three points.
He produced an inspiring 80-minute effort for his Roosters when they hammered Gunnedah.
His three-point game moved him up to five points on the B&F table.
This Saturday, Kooty host the Magpies which will be the 2021 Charity Day for the Roosters in support of the Tamworth RSL Sub-Branch.
The Kangaroos play Gunnedah at Kitchener Park for the annual Boyde Campbell Cup. Sunday's clash between Moree and Narrbari is also the annual Bernie Briggs Day. The other first grade clash sees North Tamworth take on Dungowan.
