YOUR CLUB'S 2020 LIST Who's in, who will miss the season?

2020 opponents: Gold Coast (h), North Melbourne (a), West Coast (h), Brisbane (a), Richmond (h), Adelaide (a), Geelong (h), Western Bulldogs (a)

Circle it: The Giants' round six clash with the Cats will be the first ever AFLW/AFL double-header, with GWS to take on Geelong to kick off the AFL season at Giants Stadium.

FULL FIXTURE Every round, every game

Player to watch: Yvonne Bonner was outstanding in her debut season and the Irish forward will only get better after another full pre-season. Excitement machine.

Best Rising Star chance: Maggie Gorham

2020 prediction: It could be another tough season for the Giants under new skipper Alicia Eva, with star forward Cora Staunton (broken leg) set to miss the start of the season. McConnell's midfield is one of the competition's best but kicking a winning score might be an issue, unless Bonner and Jacinda Barclay can find goals consistently.
