With a condensed NTFAW competition kicking off alongside the NTFA Shield on Saturday, the four clubs' captains analysed their opponents, coming up with some varied answers.
Meander Valley - Danielle Saltmarsh
Premiership favourites: "If you go off last season, probably Scottsdale as they made the grand final, but we are all pretty even in respects," she said.
Hardest opponent: "I don't really know many players but know that there were some players for OLs last year that we did struggle to stop."
Bridgenorth - Mikaela Clarke
Premiership favourites "I think it's going to be pretty even between everyone. Everyone has picked up players and I think it will be fairly even," she said
Hardest opponent: "I honestly don't know who is playing and who's not, each team has their standouts so we will wait and see on the day."

Scottsdale - Alex Hall and Georgie Dare
Premiership favourites: "Old Launcestonians - I've heard that they've got good numbers and will be hard to beat. I also think Bridgenorth will be hard to beat as well and Meander are a bit of an unknown," Hall said.
"They are all going to be hard to beat and we've got to beat them all."
Hardest opponent: "I'm not looking forward to going head-to-head with Letitia Johnston who has obviously been in our side the past few years," Dare said.
"I think it will be good to play, we've got a fairly new group of girls as well but playing against the same sides regularly will give us a good chance to work on our structures and tactics against the different sides."
Old Launcestonians - Emma Price
Premiership favourites: "This season I definitely think it will be between Bridgenorth and Scottsdale," she said.
"My money is on probably Bridgenorth - we played them in a practice game and they were excellent."
Hardest opponent: "I think that Letitia Johnston, who used to play for Scottsdale and is now with Bridgenorth.
"I think her experience and knowledge in that side and their mids being able to feed the ball to her, she's going to be really hard to match up on.
"She's got so much game experience and she's a strong player so anyone that plays on her will find it hard."
ROUND ONE PREVIEW
Bridgenorth v Meander Valley
Last time they met: Round six, 2019 - Meander Valley 9.3 (57) d Bridgenorth 6.4 (40).
Only facing off once last season, the Suns came out victorious on their home deck. This year, the stage has been flipped, taking to Parrot Park for their first match-up of 2020.
Both sides feature different personnel than their only previous match-up, with Meander Valley's leading goalscorer from last season, Caitlyn Webster, making her way to Old Launcestonians and Bridgenorth's leader in this match-up, Paige Crooks, moving for university.
Bridgenorth's recruitment of NTFAW representative captain Letitia Johnston could be critical in this match-up and the Parrots will be hoping to get her club debut off to a strong start.
Old Launcestonians v Scottsdale
Last time they met: Round nine, 2019 - Scottsdale 13.11 (89) d Old Launcestonians 0.0 (0).
Don't expect a massive whitewash result this time around, with both sides participating heavily in off-season movements.
Old Launcestonians bolstered their stocks with key Meander Valley players and North Launceston juniors while Scottsdale lost several big names but covered them with classy additions to their 2019 grand final side.
With several players facing their old club for the first time, this will be one to watch but the Magpies might just be too strong this time around.
