After reaching the semi-finals for two seasons in a row, the Renegades finished WBBL06 in seventh.

The Renegades have lost three of their top four wicket takers in history for WBBL07, including Tahuhu.

Molly Strano is the leading wicket taker in WBBL history with 104 wickets – she is joining the Hobart Hurricanes. Amazingly, Strano has played in all 85 of the Renegades' matches. Even crazier is that as the Renegades play the Hurricanes in their first match, Strano is likely to play in the first 86 Renegades matches, but in the 86th match will be wearing purple instead of red.

The Renegades' fourth leading wicket taker Maitlan Brown (44 wickets) is joining the Sydney Sixers. Brown has continued to improve and has been a very good performer for the Renegades.

The Renegades will have three new overseas players in WBBL07 as South African power-hitter Lizelle Lee will also not return. Lee was the Renegades' leading run scorer for WBBL06 with 261 runs.

Erin Fazakerley and Courtney Neale round out the departures for the Renegades.

At just 23 years of age, Australian star Sophie Molineux will take over from Satterthwaite as Renegades captain.
