Agree Melbourne will be right up there, their main rotation looks very good.
If @sabretooth info is correct and Forestville have 7 players in the upcoming SA Metro team then they need to be considered. Their U16 team last year was streets ahead of the field at NJC23.
The reining U18 NJC23 champs, North Bears shouldn't be discounted, they still have Perkins returning.
West would be banking on Lehmann being released by the CoE which is no certainty, especially in a World Cup year. The World Cup is in mid July so she may be only a slim chance of playing NJC.
Don’t they usually have an Aus Camp close to June long weekend prior to a World Cup? If that’s the case the talent could be depleted for NJC, Agnew, Lehmann, Hodges, Perkins, Hall, plus others could all be no shows
