The Dubbo Kangaroos have begun laying the platform for their 2020 season at their annual general meeting, but there's still a number of steps left to go for the club before the final details are hammered out.
Club president Gerald Webster said that the club's nomination process for new coaches has only just finished and that they'll be undergoing a selection process of the applicants in December.
"We'll be working out our strategy in that area over the next couple of weeks," Webster said.
Club secretary Mark Bartimote stepped down from his position, to be replaced by Megan Callinan and Ned Williams has also stepped away from the registrar role, with Sally Boucher stepping in to replace him.
The biggest concern for Webster and his reshuffled committee at this point is the shape of the Colts and under 17s competitions.
The Roos took out the premierships in both of those competitions last year and Webster wants to see both competitions return strong next year after a number of forfeits occurred in the Colts' competition.
"We had our 17s win a premiership and our Colts win a premiership, quite a few of those Colts could be around again, quite a few of the 17s are coming up," Webster said.
One blow for those competitions will be the Bathurst Bulldogs' stated intention to also feature teams in the New Holland Agriculture Cup next year.
"If they do go, it obviously weakens the Blowes Cup competition, but first and second grade will still be strong," Webster said.
Webster said while the strength of the other competitions was still unclear heading into 2020, a similar shift for the Roos wasn't being considered, given the difficulties in travel time involved.
"If it came to that, but it's a fair bit tougher for us, there's a lot of games east, there'd be a lot more travel than Bathurst would have for us to play those games."
In the first grade competition, Webster and the club's focus is entirely on finding the consistency that eluded his side last year.
Prospective finals challengers at the start of the year, the Roos campaign was derailed by injury and shifting rosters from match to match.
"The biggest question was consistency, and getting the same team on the paddock week after week, we had guys away with work, and the injuries we suffered were a big hit," Webster said.
"We weren't too far away, it's just finishing off the games and coming home stronger."
"There were a few games where we started off too slowly and didn't recover, other games we got run over in the second half."
"It's just a question of playing eighty minutes of football week in, week out, you don't get any easy runs in this comp, you have to make sure you're always on the top of your game."
