The team is in for Collingwood’s Round Nine clash with Williamstown on Saturday.

AFLW Magpies Imogen Purcell and Abbi Moloney have been included in the side, along with Mollie Emond and Neve O’Connor.

Kara Colborne-Veel, Lauren Duarante and Elizabeth Jackson have been listed as emergencies for the match.

The Pies will arrive at Downer Oval on Saturday after a 10-point victory over Essendon last weekend which saw them earn top spot on the ladder and remain the only undefeated side in the competition. 

Marla Neal was a standout in last week’s match topping the tackle chart with 14 tackles – the highest in the league for round eight – while also racking up 28 touches and slotting a major.

The Seagulls currently sit in eleventh position following a loss to Hawthorn last weekend.

Saturday’s match will mark the first occasion the Pies meet their former coach, Penny Cula-Reid.

The game will kick off at Downer Oval at 2pm.
