The talk is over and it's now time for action, according to Leeton-Whitton coach Daniel Muir.
The Crows open their season at home to Wagga Tigers on Saturday after another off-season of change but the new coach believes they will be competitive.
"There's definitely a lot of new, young faces in the side, but that's a good thing," he said.
"The goal has been to get everyone on the same page and now we need to translate that into our playing style.
"It's going to be a good opportunity for a lot of our under 17s players to be stepping up and experiencing senior footy for the first time."
Muir, who took over from Jade Hodge, is named in defence for his first official game as Crows coach.
"We've been working on a lot of the basics, especially with some of the younger players ... it's not that they don't know how to play footy, it's just refining what they know," he said.
"It's going to be an interesting year, especially now I'm a playing-coach. It's a learning experience for me as well.
"I'm keen to get out there and start putting our plans into place. The time for talk is over now."
Tigers are expected to be one of the competition's big improvers.
"Wagga will no doubt have a good side this year, so I'm expecting a tough game," he said.
"I expect them to be fit and fast, which is probably similar to us.
"We just need to focus on limiting our mistakes and putting our plans into place."
