Having a young senior side could become a double edged sword for Wodonga Raiders.
With their home and away season now over, thoughts of what 2022 may look like have started to creep in.
"I would hope they would stay together, but I think we're going to have a few girls who are going to move to uni," coach Jodie House said.
"I think that's one of the headaches you face when you have a young team.
"They're a great bunch of girls and we hope to continue seeing them around, as well as have some other young ones."
Raiders finished seventh after four wins, with their last round encounter against North Albury leaving them on a high.

House said with challenges faced, came lessons learnt.
"I think it certainly taught me from a coaching perspective that you need to go with the flow and adapt," she said.
"You can only go onwards and upwards and think about where next year is headed."
While Raiders won't feature in finals, House hopes to see a result.
"You hope that all teams that make finals get to show their hand, but if not, at least the sides that finished in the top spots get an opportunity to play some sort of grand final," she said.
