Team Selection: VFLW – Round 13

WITH five teams returning from the Round 12 bye, plenty of fresh legs will be ready to take to the field in the Victorian Football League (VFL) Women’s competition. Some teams have opted to make few changes, trusting that the week off has allowed the girls to rest, while others continue to make lots of alterations. Round 13 sees some new faces, some important re-inclusions and the prospect for plenty of good football, kicking off with the Casey Demons and Carlton.

 

CASEY DEMONS v. CARLTON

Saturday August 4, 10:30am
Casey Fields, Cranbourne

The Casey Demons have made five key changes to their Round 13 team who will take on the Blues on Saturday. After being sidelined last week, Demons fans will be excited to see AFLW player, Claudia Whitfort back in the mix alongside Catherine Phillips and Kasey Guttridge. While recent recruit, Talia Radan has been named out this week, another recruit for Melbourne’s 2019 AFLW team, Maddison Gay, arriving from Carlton’s AFLW team, has been selected for her first game in the red and navy blue. Dandenong Stingrays product, Georgia Gourlay has been named as the 23rd person.

Coming off a big win last week, the Blues will be looking to continue to prove themselves in what should be a tight contest between eighth and ninth on the ladder. Carlton have selected four inclusions highlighted by AFLW talents, Reni Hicks and Alison Downie. Also coming back into the side are former Sandringham Dragon TAC Cup Girls Best and Fairest, Olivia Vesely and the consistent Sarah Last. Kerryn Harrington, Isabella Gietzmann and Natalie Plane will all miss the clash.

On the other hand, Courtney Wakefield, Natarsha Bamblett and Grace Bibby have not been selected after a physical match against the Blues last week.

Once again, NT Thunder has made plenty of changes to accommodate for the travel to Williamstown this weekend. Highlighting the inclusions are vice-captains, Sally Riley and Lisa Roberts as well as influential forward, Jessica Sedunary who has so far kicked 14 goals for the season with no sign of stopping. The Thunder will also be re-injecting some experience this week with Dayna Cox, Courtney Cramey and Anne Hatchard all being named in. Also in this week are Jasmyn Hewett, Stevie-Lee Thompson, Georgia Bevan, Sam Barnett, Katie Streader and Jordann Hickey.
