Kangaroos

2020 PREVIEW

They set themselves up for immediate success in their debut year in 2019 and it didn’t come to fruition. On paper, Scott Gowan’s side looked the deepest, most skilled team in the AFLW competition but they couldn’t put it together when it counted. However, North look primed for another tilt at the Premiership this season despite losing Jess Duffin for the year.

The Roos managed to get the best out of Mo Hope on the field, but her unceremonious dumping underlined that culture would come before talent any day of the week under Gowans. The Roos have successfully kept the bulk of their playing group together, and Roos’ fans should be excited for what could eventuate in 2020.

North is by far one of the most devastating kicking sides in the competition. Their ball movement coupled with their ability to control possession and efficiently hit the scoreboard make them problematic for opposition teams.

They possess the best ruckman in the game in Emma King, MVP Emma Kearney’s status speaks for itself, and Jemma Bruton’s stocks as a hard-nosed inside midfielder are rising while the return of Ash Riddell through the midfield after playing two games last year adds another layer of worry for opposition teams. Jasmine Garner, Kaitlyn Ashmore, and Sophie Abbatangelo have incredible synergy up forward and the defensive unit is a team within itself; it all points to finals football in 2020.
