North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos have unveiled AFLW superstars Kaitlyn Ashmore, Emma King and Moana Hope.
"It's an incredible team already and we're not done yet," North AFLW coach Scott Gowans said.
“Kaitlyn, Emma and Mo each bring a unique set of skills and experience from their last two seasons in the competition and will only strengthen our playing list further," he added.

Ashmore, who the Brisbane Lions announced had left the club last week, is returning to her home state.
“Kaitlyn has a great ability to carry the ball through the midfield and out in space, and can break games open with her speed,” Gowans said.
King, as one of two marquee players ahead of the AFL Women's inaugural season at Collingwood, had been pursued alongside Hope by the Kangaroos.
“Emma has great tactical skill, she is also very physical and athletic which enables her to be a dominant ruck and key target up forward,” Gowans said.
Meanwhile, Hope, who was also a marquee alongside King, was linked to the club earlier this month and now has officially been signed.
The three new signings join Emma Kearney, Jas Garner, Jamie Stanton, Danielle Hardiman, Jess Duffin, Kate Gillespie-Jones, Tahlia Randall, Brittany Gibson, Jenna Bruton, Daria Bannister, Maddison Smith, Ash Riddell, Georgia Nanscawen and Elisha King in the Kangaroos inaugural squad.
