Severn Stars have welcomed in some experience both in the midcourt and shooting circle. Drayne and Humphrys are able to step straight into the starting seven if required, whilst Harris adds extra experience alongside the star power that is Tuivaiti up front. Some incredible youth in Artman coming into the side will also give a look to the future in the defensive goal circle.

The Stars have been able to add some serious depth and underrated talent to their lineup over the off-season. Whilst they had a down year last season in terms of wins and losses, they will look to build back up and tick over regular wins as they did throughout the 2018-19 seasons to be competitive throughout the season.
