Coach Jane Woodlands-Thompson heads into 2009 with eight members of the side that claimed third place in the 2008 ANZ Championship, plus outstanding former Australian player Laura von Bertouch, who re-joins her sister, team captain Natalie von Bertouch in the mid-court after a year-long break from the game. The sisters played significant roles in Australia's triumphant 2007 World Championships campaign. Other new signings are the experienced Jane Altschwager (former Sydney Swifts and Hunter Jaegers captain, and Australian international, 1999-2004), former Swifts defender Joanne Sutton, and young mid-courter Sheree Wingard.

The intimidating defensive talents of Mo’onia Gerrard, Geva Mentor and Bianca Reddy (winner of her team’s 2008 Player’s Player award) will again provide a platform for a forward line that became more dangerous last season as 23-year-old shooter Kate Beveridge emerged to become Natalie Medhurst’s regular goal circle partner, and win her Australian Player badge. 

The team is completed by a second pair of mid-court siblings, Emily Beaton and Georgia Beaton.
