OUTS:

Another loss of players for Stirling this year has again weakened the club and will impact on their ability to retain one blue status. Swan has made some good gains and were competing strongly last year before a falling away after Christmas. Despite being away from home I suspect that Swan will be far too strong.

OUTS:

Mt Lawley, new comers after a few years absent will be keen to retain 1 blue and are fielding a similar side to that that topped 2 Gold last year and were undefeated for the last 10 games. North Beach with premier league status have made solid player gains and I suspect will be top four this year in 1 blue. On the Mt Lawley green with their local knowledge I am tipping the locals to prevail.

OUTS:

Massive quality player gains at Quinns together with a huge effort going down to Manning in 2nd division pennant final last year on the second extra end, despite home ground advantage to Manning indicates they will be a power in 1 Blue. Yokine was good last year and have gained two top class skippers for the year ahead, they should be a top four side. However, the power of Quinns will prevail, few sides will take points at Quinns this year.

OUTS:

1 red player gains has fed down to the second side and Doubleview will field a very strong 1 blue side this year. Wanneroo has had player departures off season and only just held 1 blue in the promotional playoffs against a determined Bedford side. I am tipping Doubleview to finish top two and I reckon they will show their quality by winning comprehensively.

OUTS:

Very little news from Mundaring but I suspect that they will field a similar team to last year which has been in 1 blue for many years now. Kalamunda, player losses and did struggle last year, winning the promotional play off last year to retain their 1 blue status. I think that will find it difficult this year and first up at Mundaring is not what you really want.
