Ins: Emma Smith (Woordoo-Mortlake), Ruby Pekin-Schlicht (overseas)
Outs: Caitlin Hall (Thomson), Emma Wright (retired)
Player to watch: Ruby Pekin-Schlicht
Coach's comment: "I think it is hard to compare clubs after a having a year off, but with keeping the majority of our team from 2019, I would like to think we are shaping up ok." - Brooke Richardson
Prediction: Fifth - The Magpies were in the finals in 2019, defeated North Warrnambool in week one then lost to Koroit, which was promising signs of where this team was going. Expect them back in there again.
2019 finish: Runners-up
Ins: Jess Wheadon (pregnancy), Sophie Hinkley (Newtown and Chilwell)
Outs: Alicia Blain (Timboon Demons), Bec Dendle (Timboon Demons)
Player to watch: Sophie Hinkley. Expect her to lead from the front and help push for finals.
Coach's comment: "We've probably had a bit of change of perspective. We've been so successful throughout the season but the only thing that really counts as true success is winning a grand final, which has been a bit elusive. We've come back and we've been looking at what we can do differently." - Sophie Hinkley
Prediction: Third - Will be pushing towards the top of the ladder once again. Sophie Hinkley is back and the core group still remains at the club so expect the good run to continue. Is one of the premiership contenders alongside Koroit and South Warrnambool.

Ins: Chloe Tuffnel (baby), Hayley Sherlock (returning), Jedah Huf, Hollie Phillips (under 17s), Kyra Mckinnis (Geelong), Bec Arnold
Outs: Madeline Casey, Laura Robinson, Jess Crane (Mininera), Emily Pertzel (moved), Kelsey Lewis (pregnant)
Player to watch: Kyra Mckinnis - "A new player for us who has come from the Geelong area. Her work rate and effort is exceptional and she never stops. She is fitting in very well with the girls and is going to be a real asset to our team." - Kelsey Lewis
Coach's comment: "Things are coming together nicely, the girls are just really looking forward to getting out there now and finally being able to play after such the long break. I'm really excited for this season; new faces, some faces making long awaited returns to us and just a really great group of girls. We have lots of positives to take forward with us into the season." - Kelsey Lewis
Prediction: Ninth - The Kangaroos are shaping up well for a big season and will be in what is shaping up as a tight battle from fifth place to last. Some handy inclusions will help them push for more wins this season. A chance to climb up the ladder this season.
2019 finish: Premiers
Ins: Milly Jennings, Layla Monk, Molly McLaren (juniors)
Outs: Emily-Rose Finnigan, Kasey Barling (pregnant)
Player to watch: Rachel Dobson - Being back form a snapped Achilles she will be a player back in form and is fit and ready to go.
Coach's comment: It (the side) is unpredictable and we have lots of kids but I think they are all shaping up pretty well.
Prediction: Runners-up - Two seasoned players may be out but the Saints always find a way to cover departures with impressive juniors. The Good Friday thriller against the Roosters shows the Saints are still a big contender. They'll be pushing for another flag. More than capable of continuing this impressive streak.
North Warrnambool Eagles
2019 finish: Fifth
Ins: Juniors from under 17s
Outs: Annie Blackburn (South Warrnambool), Sophie Ballinger, Jaimie Barr (stepped away)

Prediction: Eighth - Another team who will be fighting for the last spot in the finals. Have had some big departures but have also brought in some talented players to balance the side.
2019 finish: 10th
Outs: Renee Pluckhahn, Rani Kane
Player to watch: Remy Grant - "She is our go girl. She is fiery and she doesn't hold back and is all about winning and going hard." - Lauren Hockley
Coach's comment: "We are pretty much the same team as we were going to carry through and have lost a couple but we are still very versatile it's just about finding the right match up to teams." - Lauren Hockley
Prediction: 10th - The Tigers can have a big impact on the competition but with a tight competition one team will end up at the bottom of the ladder. Are capable of clawing their way off the bottom of ladder.

Ins: Annie Blackburn (North Warrnambool), Carly Watson (Port Fairy), Chelsea McMahon (Port Fairy), Ally O'Connor (return from injury)
Outs: Meg Sutherland (university), Hannah Loveday (university), Gen O'Connor, Ruby Wilson
Player to watch: Ally Mellblom. Talented defender who is balancing time at South with Victorian Netball League outfit Ariels. Going to be an integral pairing with Carly Watson.
Coach's comment: "I think South is reaping the rewards of the junior programs we've had in place for some time. We have under 17 players from last season who are ready to step up and most of the recruits we've pulled back are ex-South players who are coming back. I think this year we'll see a bit of all that time and effort pay off. It's an exciting time for the club." - Leesa Battistello
Prediction: First - Battistello has assembled a great team and now its just about putting it all together on the court. The Roosters are primed for a big year. Form and injuries will be critical in the flag race.

Ins: Laura Ritchie (North Warrnambool Eagles), Rhi Davis (South Rovers)
Outs: Melissa Burt (overseas), Aimee Moloney (pregnant), Jessica Davis (baby), Libby Moloney (GFL)
Player to watch: Brooke Hoare - "She is fabulous and can't say enough about her." - Liz Fowler
Coach's comment: "I'm excited about the girls now we have had a couple of practices matches and we have been on the court since early February. We have got a lot of versatility and lot of young girls." - Liz Fowler
Prediction: Seventh - Have lost a few experienced players in the year off but are still a capable finals side. Their two additions will add to Fowler's versatile side. Has improved in the previous season and is one of the team's pushing for top five.
2019 finish: Third
Ins: Ava Pierce, Ash Evans (Port Fairy), Jaimie Goodman (South Australia)
Player to watch: Amy Wormald, Emma Cust and Ava Pierce. Trio of stars within the Blues side. Will be pivotal for their flag push.
