Magpies will field the most Cup starters with five, including Cutters newcomer Luke Dolbel.

Brothers junior Raydan Burns will return to the club, ready to light it up after impressing in Cutters colours through pre-season.

Dynamic Cutters duo Pauli Byrnes and Yamba Bowie will bolster Norths' outside backs stocks, while Wests will welcome back familiar faces in Sheldon Bobbert and Jesse Dee.

Souths will welcome the services of former Sarina dynamo Kyle Krisanski-Kennedy, as the Sharks' new-look 'Barbarians' squad begins to take shape.

Perhaps most shocking though, are the Cutters regulars who will not suit up for local club sides this season.

In all, 13 players have either left town or chosen not to play in the 2020 RLMD competition.

Cutters skipper Jayden Hodges has moved home to Cairns to be with family, while 2019 captain Cooper Bambling has moved to Moranbah and will likely link with the Miners in 2021.

Whitsunday Brahmans 2019 premiership-winner Augustus Rangihuna has moved south in search of different football opportunities while Tonga international five-eighth Ata Hingano has chosen not to play this season.

The Rugby League Mackay and District A-Grade season kicks off on August 1.
