Collingwood has named its extended squad for Sunday’s clash against the Swans at Sydney’s Henson Park.
Forward Charlotte Taylor return to the squad for the Round Nine clash, replacing Lauren Butler (hamstring)
Taylor will play her first game for 2023 if selected in the final side, following the three games she played in 2022.
Butler potentially faces three to four weeks on the sidelines following the injury sustained to her hamstring during Sunday’s six-point win over Geelong at Victoria Park.
The clash will be Collingwood’s first trip to New South Wales to take on Sydney and second of all-time against the Swans after last season’s 31-point victory in Round Two at Victoria Park.
Sunday’s clash will also see Collingwood’s Steve Symonds notch up 50 AFLW games as Senior Coach. Symonds joined the Club ahead of the 2020 season and has since enjoyed a 63.3% win record and has guided the Magpies to the Finals at every attempt.
It will also be the first time Collingwood will come face-to-face with former Magpie Chloe Molloy, following her off-season move north to the expansion club.
Collingwood will be wearing it’s 2023 Pride Guernsey for the first time in the clash, following its release this week. You can learn more about the guernsey and buy your own here.
