NEW ROCHESTER coach Steven Stroobants is going to find out just how good his side is - very quickly.

The 2020 Goulburn Valley League fixture, revealed on Thursday, will see the Tigers face off against the top three from 2019 in their first five games.

Their season will start off against Mansfield at home before facing 2019 grand finalists Kyabram and Echuca in consecutive weeks.
