The AFLW Pies are ready for a big clash against Fremantle

Collingwood midfielder Maddie Shevlin will make her AFLW debut when the Pies take on the Dockers in Perth on Saturday.

Having been delisted by Melbourne as a rookie early last year, Shevlin had an impressive VFLW season, which saw her awarded the team’s best and fairest.

Nicole Hildebrand will also put on the black and white for her first AFLW match since departing Brisbane last season.

Whilst Sophie Alexander will re-join the side, Pies’ vice-captain Emma Grant has been ruled out with an injury to her left shoulder sustained in last week’s match.
