KEEP AN EYE ON

Carlton's Sarah Last makes her return to football after an ACL injury. GWS also welcome back midfielder Emma Swanson. It will be the first time that the Giants' marquee signings (Swanson and Renee Forth) take the field together.

 

SNAPSHOT

GWS took it right up to the highly fancied Melbourne last week, falling short by just six points. Carlton held on for a narrow win against Collingwood in a dour struggle. GWS will be looking to win the midfield battle and cut off the supply to Carlton's firepower up forward.

 

In an interesting stat, GWS have never lost a game in Sydney and Carlton have never won away from their home ground Ikon Park.

Emg: M.Rajcic 32, S.Armitstead 16

 

In: A.Holmes, J.McCormick
Out: A.Hatchard (injured), S.Armitstead

 

KEEP AN EYE ON

Melbourne's leading goalkicker from last season, Alyssa Mifsud, has made her way back into the team and provides the Demons with another tall marking target up forward, alongside Tegan Cunningham.

 

Adelaide also welcome the return of goalkicker Abbey Holmes and talented cross-coder Jenna McCormick.

 

SNAPSHOT

This fixture was one of the matches of the season last year with the result going right down to the wire. This time around though, Adelaide will be without Erin Phillips in the midfield and the experience of Courtney Cramey. However, Ebony Marinoff comes into this match off the back of a VFLW season working closely with Melbourne's midfield quartet of Pearce, O'Dea, Paxman and Hickey at the Darebin Falcons. Can her insider knowledge help give the Crows the edge?

KEEP AN EYE ON
Fremantle captain Kara Donnellan thrives on the big stage and will no doubt lead by example on Saturday night.
 
A big inclusion for Collingwood is forward Jess Duffin. Duffin was very impressive in Collingwood's last match against the Dockers and they will be hoping she can hit the scoreboard again this week.
 
SNAPSHOT
Both teams will be looking to bounce back strongly from their Round One defeats. They won't be short on motivation given they are expected to play in front of a record crowd of over 50,000 at Perth's brand new Optus Stadium.

KEEP AN EYE ON

This will be Lions supporter's first opportunity to see new recruits Nat Exon and Bella Ayre in action, both acquired during last year's trade period.

 

The Bulldogs have bolstered their defence with the inclusion of Hayley Wildes and Bailey Hunt.

 

SNAPSHOT

This clash is shaping to be the match of the round, with both teams eyeing a two-win start to their season. Both sides are bursting with talent right across the park, so this might just come down to a battle of gamestyle. How will the Bulldogs kicking game stand up against the relentless pressure of Brisbane?
