Full squads are now locked down, internationals signed and we know there are a few players set to make their debuts in the world class competition.

The preliminary final will be played on September 8.

The season decider has been slated for September 15.

LATE NEWS

After much speculation, New Zealand shooter Maria Folau finally announced she would be in the colours of the Thunderbirds next season.

She is one of numerous internationals in a team rebuilding after two disappointing seasons of Super Netball.

THE NUMBER GAME

Australian netballers will make up 74 per cent of the players in the third season of Super Netball.

This means 59 locals will be in the competition alongside 21 internationals.

This is just three more overseas players than in the 2018 competition.

INTERNATIONAL BREAKDOWN

This means there is at least one international in every team in the 2019 competition.

Jhaniele Fowler finished the season as the top shooter and will likely own the title again in 2019.
