Coach: Sarah Moore.
Last year: 5th
Gains: Lauren Coelli (Brock-Burrum), Bec Britton, Audrey Barker (Jindera), Kate Rollings, Hayley Butler, Sally Kapay (Lavington).
Losses: Jess Fisher-Curnow (not playing), Rebekah Ohlin (pregnant).
Prospects: Albury has bolstered stocks with several Lavington players joining the club, including star defender Kate Rollings (nee Yensch). Rollings sat last season out after having a baby and is a huge pick-up. The Tigers have also seen the return of Lauren Coelli, who is likely to replace departing goal shooter Jess Fisher-Curnow. The side was lucky to make finals in a close call last season before bowing out in the first round to Yarrawonga. The new additions should strengthen the side further.
Last year: 2nd (1st after regular season).
Gains: Maddy O'Keefe (Wang Magpies), Lisa Tobin (Rand-Walbundrie-Walla), Leah Keating (returning), Bec Duryea (Greta).
Losses: Ella Kingston (Melbourne), Beck O'Connell (Billabong Crows), Annie Bell (Thurgoona).
Prospects: After having their A, B and C-grades in finals and claiming a B-grade flag, the Roos will take tremendous confidence in after one of their most successful years to date. The inclusion of Grace Senior as Roos' goal shooter was seamless last year, with defender Sophie Hanrahan claiming back-to-back Toni Wilson medals. Both remain at the club under coach Georgie Bruce, with the side keeping it's core playing group together. After coming within an inch of claiming an A-grade premiership, the Roos will no doubt be hungry for more and could have the stability to reach it.
Coach: Catherine Wood.
Last year: 4th (3rd after regular season).
Gains: Shinead Kilroy, Angela Kavanagh (Brock-Burrum) Rachel Ralph (Albury) Kate Herbert and Maddy Hynes (returning).
Losses: Sarah Senini (Yarrawonga), Skye Hillier (injured), Heidi Fisher, Hayley Butler, Sally Kapay (Albury), Erin Haberecht, Ebony Hoskin (Howlong).
Prospects: Lavington has experienced the biggest shake-up during the off-season. For the first time in four years they won't be led by Tamara Mathews, with Corowa-Rutherglen export Catherine Wood entering her first stint as an O and M coach. The loss of shooters Sarah Senini and Skye Hillier will leave an opportunity open in goals. Gabbie Star rose to the challenge last season when Senini and Hillier were injured and has remained at the club. The side has retained several players, including star defender Sarah Meredith. Could the change of guard be what Lavington needs to go one better this season?
Coach: Tina Way.
Last year: 8th.
Gains: Tina Way, Zoe Pitts (Barnawartha), Tayla Cartwright (Wodonga Raiders), Eve Way, Aimee Antonello.
Losses: Hannah Masin, Steph Laracy.
Prospects: The Saints will warmly welcome the arrival of Tina Way, with the playing coach bringing a wealth of netball experience to the club. Way won three consecutive league best and fairest awards in the Darwin Netball Association Premier League from 2016-2018, before claiming runner-up in last season's Tallangatta and District Netball Association count. Much of last year's core playing group has stayed at the club as they continue to build. Could we see the netball side replicate the success the club's footballers had last season?
Coach: Fiona Boyer and Chloe Senior.
Last year: 7th.
Gains: Chloe Senior, Maddie Pearson (B-grade), Natalie Heagney, Niamh Boyer (16-under).
Losses: Elyse Boyer (moving for university), Georgie Attree (Kiewa Sandy-Creek), Tayla Vogel (Jindera), Kirby Hilton (retired).
Prospects: Last season marked the first time North Albury hadn't appeared in an A-grade finals series since 2005. The Hoppers started to hit their straps in the back end of the season, claiming two big wins against Lavington and Wodonga Raiders. The club has experienced some losses, with defender Elyse Boyer relocating to Geelong for university and captain Kirby Hilton retiring. Chloe Senior has stepped up to fill a co-coaching role alongside Fiona Boyer and will also play. Several juniors will look to push their way into the senior team, with the club receiving no new players from external clubs.
Coach: Kellie Keen.
Last year: Premiers (2nd after regular season).
Gains: No gains.
Losses: No losses.
Prospects: With no player movement in the off-season, the back-to-back premiers look set to be hard to overcome again. The Magpies have been virtually unchanged from their first A-grade premiership team in 2018 and should continue to work like a well oiled machine. Issy Byrne starred in the Magpies threegoal grand final win against Corowa-Rutherglen, while goal shooter Amanda Umanski racked up 823 goals last year. Defender Hannah Grady was also impressive claiming runner-up in the Toni Wilson medal. The Magpies will again be hunted as teams look to stop their run. Can they make it three in a row?
Coach: Jo Cresswell.
Last year: 9th.
Gains: Katey Pryor, Milly Mathewson (O&K league), Carly Vanderheuvel (returning), Kelsie Wilson (under-16's), Carly Perso, Mikaela Trethowan.
Losses: Caitlin Cose, Sami Kreltszheim (not playing), Ainslee Dowling (pregnant).
Prospects: Former Wodonga Raiders' coach Jo Cresswell will steer the Rovers this season, with outgoing coach Ash Martin to captain the side. The club has picked up Ovens and King league recruits Katey Pryor and Milly Mathewson and look to have a mix of developing youth and experience. The side won two games last season, but with their under-16's team claiming the flag, look to have young talent making their way up.
Coach: Sally Anthony.
Last year: 10th.
Gains: Jess Pell (Wang Rovers), Ellie Ainsworth, Cassi Mathey, Ella Vandermeer, Meg Vardy, Zoe Lawson (juniors).
Losses: Hannah Dwyer, Laura Collins (Tallangatta league), Emily Dwyer (relocated for university), Kelli McDonald.
Prospects: Last year's wooden spooner look to be going through a rebuilding phase with two-time Bulldogs' premiership player Sally Anthony returning to the club to lead the charge. They've had a turnover of players, with just Abi Adams, Jess Barton and Maddi McFarland remaining from last year's side. McFarland cemented herself as a dynamic player for Bulldogs last season, receiving an O and M rising star nomination. The club has lost Dwyer sisters, Hannah and Emily, from defence, however their gains outweigh their losses.
Coach: Jodie House.
Last year: 6th.
Gains: Georgia Way, Lucy Way, Georgie Pitson, Meg Smith (Culcairn), Molly McGrath (16-under), Ellie Gleeson.
Losses: Vashti Muller, Georgia Thomas (moving for university), Zoe Rae (not playing).
Prospects: Had a devastating finish to what was a solid season after a round 18 loss to North Albury pushed them out of finals contention. The heartbreak could be a motivator, with much of their core group remaining. As has been the case for the past few seasons, they will have a young team with a focus on growth. The loss of defender Vashti Muller hurts, with the young gun shining for the side last year. Raiders would have gained confidence from last season, securing the team's first win against Yarrawonga in 14 years.
Coach: Tracy Gillies.
Last year: 3rd (4th after regular season).
Gains: Sarah Senini (Lavington), Sharni and Taylah Hazelman (Barooga), Jedda Nolen (Rennie), Georgia Creighton (Canberra), Renee McClure (GV league).
Losses: Bridget Cassar (not playing), Indiana Frauenfelder (Mulwala).
Prospects: The return of Yarrawonga stalwart Tracy Gillies is a coup. It appears what the two-time Toni Wilson Medallist touches turns to gold, leading Yarrawonga to seven grand finals in her previous two stints at the helm. The inclusion of star Lavington goal shooter Sarah Senini is huge. Senini reached 250 A-grade games for the Panthers last year, however a knee injury left her sidelined. As one shooter emerges, two depart, with stalwart Bridget Cassar taking a year off and Indiana Frauenfelder joining the Murray league.
