Life after Ellyse Perry has started for the all-conquering NSW Breakers, who have included six Australian under-19 players in an inexperienced squad for 2019-20.
NSW, who have won a staggering 20 of the past 23 women's National Cricket League (WNCL) titles, will be without star allrounder Perry next season.
Perry's departure leaves skipper Alyssa Healy, Ashleigh Gardner and Rachael Haynes as the Breakers' only nationally-contracted players.
Perry has previously revealed she is joining Victoria and moving to Melbourne, where husband Matt Toomua will soon be based when he links up with the city's Super Rugby franchise.
Tasmania recruits Nicola Carey, Maisy Gibson and Belinda Vakarewa are no longer part of NSW's squad, while Mikayla Hinkley and Carly Leeson have also relocated.
Offspinning allrounder Erin Burns, who is originally from Wollongong but has played 48 WNCL matches while representing Tasmania and ACT, has been recruited by her home state.
"When you lose the calibre of player that we've lost, they're always extremely hard to replace," NSW general manager David Moore said.
"We're not looking to replace those people, we're just looking to get some more experience in and Erin has done a good job during her WNCL career."
Teenagers Hayley Silver-Holmes, Stella Campbell, Maddy Darke and Phoebe Litchfield have all received NSW contracts for the first time.
The quartet join fellow current Australian U-19 representatives Tahlia Wilson and Rachel Trenaman in the Breakers' 17-player squad.
