Coming into the 2020 season with a new coach, no major expectation and a focus on creating a fun culture, Perth could be a dangerous unit come the latter stages.
Announcing former Meander Valley Suns captain, Danny Bennett, as their coach for the upcoming year, the Magpies group left a good impression on the 29-year-old from the get go.
"They are a young group and they've got a little bit of experience there and if I can add a bit to it as well, I don't think they are far away," he said.
"I think they showed last year that for two-and-a-half quarters, they were competitive with majority of the teams in the competition so it's a good opportunity for me to challenge myself by coming to a team and trying to get them up to the top end of the ladder."

Taking the reins from last year's club leading goalkicker, Josh Holton, who was in the role for 18 months, Bennett was approached by the Magpies as a suitor for the role and has already attracted some fresh recruits.
Meander Valley team-mates Daniel Connell, Jayden Bennett, Brendon Johnson and experienced leader, Bradley Basuik have come along for the ride while Bracknell's Conan Duhig, who finished second in the association's reserves best and fairest, will also join the line-up.
"Daniel's been a top-10 finisher in Meander's best and fairest since they've been alive, so he's a very good player off the half back with good skills.
"I've gained a few of the twos boys from Meander that I definitely think are well and truly senior players, it's just a matter of getting them to commit and I've got a pretty good relationship with those guys as well."
Looking to implement a new game plan, Bennett, who also plays Premier League cricket for ACL, is keen on improving last year's eighth position, putting the onus on himself.
"It's just exciting really. It's a good opportunity for me and the club to improve ourselves and go in a different direction to where we have been.
"That comes down to me getting the process right and getting the trust from everyone to buy in."
