This year the division features 11 players, 5 returning from Smirnoff last season, 2 relegated down from Grey Goose, 1 player returning to the league after a season's absence and three league newcomers.
Amber Carter is back for her fourth season having missed just the inaugural season.
The SPBL ever-present Mike Collins is back in this division for the first time since Season 1, after finishing that season as runner-up and playing in Grey Goose for the last three season before relegation last season.
Looking at the opening day's fixtures, Amber Carter and Elliot Riley face one another in the only match to feature two returning players from the division last season, with Amber having won both prior Smirnoff meetings - 6-3 last season and 5-4 in Season 3. Mike Collins plays Mark Tumilty having also won both previous SPBL encounters - 6-3 in Smirnoff in Season 1 and 5-4 in Grey Goose in Season 2. The other three matches all see the league newcomers in action as Trevor Gunn faces Max Burgess, Laura Hunter plays Sue Latham and Mark Frost faces Ryan May.
Week 5 on 12th November brings not only the match between the two relegated players in Max Burgess versus Mike Collins, it will also feature the two highest finishing returning players from last season as Sue Latham (5th place) faces Dan Dalton (4th place).
