Both the Northern Hawks and Cavaliers have been netballing forces to reckon with in recent years.
Captains Danni Pickett (Hawks) and Shelby Miller (Cavs) have certainly been significant contributors to said success.
The Examiner's Harry Murtough asked the pair about how their skills have evolved since their earlier years and what it means to be part of two dominant franchises.
Have the two of you ever played together? What was that like?
Miller: I played for one year with Danni at Grammar in my first year doing netball at Grammar.
I've also played with Danni with the Tasmanian Magpies as well ... it's pretty different being on the opposition side but I think once you walk over that white line, being friends has to be put to bed and opposition comes in to play.
Pickett: I think we've both been quite competitive throughout our whole careers and we've both been in state teams at different stages.
It was really nice to come together a couple of years ago with the Tassie Magpies and get a premiership together but obviously on different sides of the court now.

What's kept you invested in netball for so long?
M: It's one of those sports that you really have to have a strong team culture to enjoy because it's a long season ... it's an amazing challenge but the social side is great.
I think it comes down to the pathways of each individual club, I know we've got a really strong focus on our development of girls and a training culture that expects nothing less than 100 per cent ... I really think it comes down to effort.
P: The reason we've been playing for so long is because of the friends that we make through netball. There's no money incentive or anything like that in our state - you've got to be doing it for the love of it and that's why I do it.
And also to try and give back to the people that have grown small clubs into something that's really successful.
I pretty much started playing because of my mum ... I was going to her training sessions with her as a kid and I think that's where my inspiration to play started.Danni Pickett
Who did or do you look up to in netball?
M: Growing up I didn't really follow the netball that much, I just rocked up because I liked playing sport.
But Dannie Carstens has played a massive role in my development, being coached by her and also playing alongside her at a young age.
Dan Roden has also been a great influence ... he's just been a breath of fresh air at the club.
He's one of the most innovative coaches I've ever had and the amount of hours he spends analysing the game, ringing you up and getting your opinion ... I think it's absolutely refreshing to have someone like that.
P: I pretty much started playing because of my mum [Lynne Pickett] ... I was going to her training sessions with her as a kid and I think that's where my inspiration to play started.
She's been a massive support to me from the start and all the way through to now where she's our current team manager.
Kellie Woolnough as well. She's been with the team for more than 10 years and I've had Kel for about half of that time as my coach.
I think just her commitment to the club and the things she puts on behind the scenes to keep us engaged in training even though we've been to the finals five years in a row.
From being rookies yourselves to the captains you are now, what is it like to lead the next generation?
M: When you're in a leadership role it has to come naturally, it's not something you have to think about much. For me I just really go about my business whether I had a leadership role or not, I'd be doing the same.
P: Similar to Shelb, there's nothing extra you do as a leader, it's just about being a really good support for girls that are your age but also younger girls coming into the team.
