Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong hope to be the big movers in this year's Riverina League A grade netball title race after a massive off-season.
The Lions have enjoyed a big recruitment drive, headlined by the arrival of three-time Farrer League medallist Ruby Porter from North Wagga.
Porter has made the move to GGGM, along with her partner Liv Hounsell, twin sister Megan Porter and Mangoplah-Cookardinia United-Eastlakes' Meg Jolley.
Ruby Porter has won the past three Marilyn Brooks Medals for best and fairest in the Farrer League and will join two-time Riverina League best and fairest Brooke Walsh in the defensive circle.
Megan Porter and Meg Jolley will strengthen GGGM's centre court, while Hounsell will boost the Lions' shooting department.
New GGGM A grade coach Alice Kenny said the return of Emma Walsh to the club laid the foundation for the recruiting blitz.
"It was the North Wagga connection," Kenny said.
"Emma Walsh had a bit to do with that. She's come back over to Ganmain with her new little girl and she is coaching A Res now. She was a big help."
Kenny said the new arrivals have created a huge buzz at the club.
"This has definitely boosted the vibe around the club," she said.
"We were on the lower end of the ladder last year but we were always competitive against teams and this year I think we've got that boost to be more than just competitive, which is exciting."
Kenny, who had her first year at GGGM last season, is excited to take on the coaching job.
She has been happy with her team's form leading up to a round one clash against Narrandera on Saturday.
"We're not too bad," she said.
"We've done a few practice matches and that's gone pretty well."
Kenny said a return to finals is the goal for GGGM, and not just in the top grade.
"Finals is our goal," she said.
"Because of this boost to the top end of our club, we're aiming for finals for the lower grades as well because there has been a lot of movements between the grades, which is exciting for Ganmain."
Meantime, Wagga Tigers will begin their quest for a fourth straight Riverina League premiership with a trip to Leeton on Saturday to face the Crows.
Collingullie-Glenfield Park will start favourites at home against Griffith at Crossroads Oval, while there will be plenty of interest in the match between Turvey Park and Mangoplah-Cookardinia United-Eastlakes at Maher Oval.
Coolamon has the round one bye.
