A NEW SEASON of the NAB AFLW competition means a new lot of season predictions, some of which will probably end up wide of the mark.
Have a look below to see how Sarah Black believes the season will pan out.
Premier: North Melbourne
Last in respective conferences: Gold Coast (A), West Coast (B)
Moving up: Western Bulldogs
Set to fall: Brisbane
AFLW best and fairest: Anne Hatchard (Adelaide)
Leading goalkicker: Gemma Houghton (Fremantle)
Recruit of the year: If naming Daisy Pearce is cheating, I'll go with Monique Conti (Richmond)
Headline you'll see: From the Crows to Dees, Sarah Perkins makes shock AFLW comeback as injuries mount
Headline you won't see: Reigning premiers Adelaide crash out and miss finals
Big call: The return of Lauren Pearce from a knee injury will lead to a late, but ultimately futile, charge for finals by Melbourne
Game-changer: The gap between the experienced clubs and the expansion teams will widen in 2020.
