Harris, Gee among AFLW inclusions

Team Selection | AFLW Round 5 Emily Angwin brings you all the team selection news ahead of our AFL Women's game against Adelaide.

CARLTON has made five changes to its AFLW team for this weekend’s clash with Adelaide at Norwood Oval. 

The Blues regain defender Danielle Hardiman and bullish midfielder Katie Loynes, after both were late withdrawals from last week’s disappointing loss to the Bulldogs.

Hardiman, who was the Club’s runner-up best-and-fairest, will add experience to the team’s defence, while Loynes, who is adept at winning her own ball, provides extra grunt in the middle.

After serving a one-week suspension, the Blues also welcome back key forward Tayla Harris, while the Club’s first pick in last year’s draft, Georgia Gee, will help bolster the Blues’ forward half.

Zippy midfielder Lauren Brazzale, who suffered a shoulder injury against the Lions in Round 3, returns to the primary list and to the side this week, while Katie-Jayne Grieve reverts back to the rookie list.

If you’re in Adelaide, make sure you head down to watch our AFLW team in action - they need your support as we get down to the pointy end of the season.
