Club: Gold Coast

Coach: David Lake

2020 captaincy candidates: Leah Kaslar, Sally Riley, Sam Virgo

Star recruits: Hannah Dunn, Tiarna, Ernst, Leah Kaslar, Jamie Stanton, Sam Virgo 

Inactive players: Nil

2020 opponents: Greater Western Sydney (a), Richmond (h), Brisbane (h), North Melbourne (a), Geelong (h), West Coast (a), Adelaide (h), Melbourne (a).

Circle it: The easy option is the round three QClash against Brisbane, but the week before is history – Gold Coast's first home game against fellow expansion outfit Richmond.

Player to watch: As a teenager playing women Jade Pregelj was a star in Queensland, going stride for stride with Katie Brennan, Kate Lutkins and Aasta O'Connor. She took a seven-year break from the sport but is now back.

Best Rising Star chance: Ellie Hampson

2020 prediction: Hard to predict the fate of a new club. The Suns are quite young and will be underestimated by most, but with a lot of local players will have good chemistry and should be competitive most weeks, particularly in the hot weather for home matches.
