2019 best and fairest: Meg McDonald

2019 in a nutshell: Qualifying for a preliminary final in season one, the Cats were blown off the park by Adelaide by 66 points en route to the Crows tasting premiership success. No.1 draft pick Nina Morrison starred in front of more than 18,000 as the Cats win their first ever game in round one, but the star midfielder ruptured her ACL just five days later at training.

New players: Millie Brown, Gemma Wright, Nicole Garner, Mia Skinner, Amy McDonald, Madisen Maguire

Notable departures: Erin Hoare (retired), Mia Rae-Clifford (Fremantle)

Circle it: The Cats face Conference A rivals Greater Western Sydney in round seven in a historic day with the first ever AFLW-AFL double header. 

Player to watch: Attacking half-back Rebecca Webster will look to carry on with the form that saw her claim the Cats' VFLW best and fairest. The 19-year-old played four matches in her first AFLW season in 2019.

Best Rising Star chance: Sophie Van De Heuvel

2020 prediction: The Cats have made minimal changes to the squad from their inaugural season and the continuity should assist ahead of the second campaign. The continued growth of youngsters Nina Morrison, Sophie Can De Heuval, Rebecca Webster and Olivia Purcell should assist the Cats in their switch to tackle Conference A.
