The Broncos are the team to beat in the NRL Telstra Women's Premiership with a dominant three titles in three seasons.
A core group of their victorious 2020 campaign have stuck together in a bid to extend their competition-winning streak to four, and possibly five, in 2022.
The introduction of three new NRLW clubs has seen some change to the Broncos squad but their starting 1-13 still form an imposing threat for any side.
Four players have played every season at the club - Ali Brigginshaw, Chelsea Lenarduzzi, Lavinia Gould and Julia Robinson - while the squad has a total 91 games of NRLW experience - the most in the competition.
Broncos coach Kelvin Wright will likely turn to uncapped youth on the bench with a few departures and nine members in the squad yet to make their NRLW debut.
Brisbane have two spots left to fill on their roster by the end of January.
The likes of Jada Ferguson and Hayley Maddick are the next talents set to feature in the NRLW while Lesa Mataafa and Roxy Murdoch are also players to watch.
Possible best 17
1. Tamika Upton 2. Shenae Ciesiolka 3. Lauren Brown 4. Julia Robinson 5. Amy Turner 6. Jada Ferguson 7. Tarryn Aiken 8. Millie Boyle 9. Lavinia Gould 10. Chelsea Lenarduzzi 11. Tallisha Harden 12. Amber Hall 13. Ali Brigginshaw. Interchange: 14. Hayley Maddick 15. Roxy Murdoch 16. Sara Sautia 17. Lesa Mataafa.
Take your pick, really. It all starts at fullback with Tamika Upton right through to Ali Brigginshaw.
Brisbane's spine has troubled sides previously and despite the departure of Raecene McGregor, there should be minimal disruption for their attack regardless of whether Brigginshaw remains at lock or switches back to the halves.
Brisbane's starting pack is also a frightening sight with Amber Hall and Tallisha Harden in the back row complementing Jillaroos props Millie Boyle and Chelsea Lenarduzzi in the middle.
The side's edges are also very strong defensively out wide in another point of difference for Wright's outfit.
Biggest question mark
The side's depth looms as a possible problem for the Broncos if an injury or suspension strikes throughout the new seven-week competition.
There will be some reliance on their uncapped players to get them through the campaign and provide an impact when the big guns are given a breather.
However, the Broncos have also proven in the past that they're more than capable of unearthing enough talent to fill any void.
The Broncos will open their season with a grand final rematch against the Roosters at McDonald Jones Stadium on February 27.
They'll travel down to the Gold Coast for the Queensland derby on March 19 before hosting their second-ever home game against the Eels in round five.
