Macquarie Hornets centre Grace Power feels her side could be in for a successful year after winning their first match of the season on Saturday.
Power and the Hornets defeated Fusion Wild 46-42 in round three of the Rawson Homes Premiership A Grade competition and the centre is upbeat about the side's potential.
"We're excited, we quite a new team playing together so we are just trying to find our combinations," she said.
"We have a few new players, Emoline McCullough she is only 14 so a little bit of guidance from the older girls and we will gel nicely together."
Power said the teenage defender has been brilliant since joining the side and is looking forward to watching her develop over the coming season.
"I'm really impressed with Emmy, she's a new girl from out of town and a boarder and I think she will really come into her own being only 14 and playing against adults," she said.
"We've had two young teams over the last two weeks but with a bit of guidance from our older players we will see good things come from her this year."
Power feels with a few more weeks under their belts, the Hornets could surprise a few teams in the competition.
"I think we have a really strong team once we find our combinations, there's five of us that played in the regional league team this year," she said.
"So I think once we have a few more games together our combinations will really work well, I think we will be strong and should see the finals."
Elsewhere in round three, the Narromine Hawks defeated competition heavyweights Fusion 48-45 in what may have been a grand final preview.
The Hawks have now won their last two games this season.
St Groovers edged out the Nyngan Cougars 44-38 while Dubbo Rhinos Rebels had the bye.
