Geelong has made five changes ahead of their round five VFLW clash, as they prepare to take on the Giants in Sydney this Saturday. 

The Cats will be looking to make it three straight wins this weekend, after recording another impressive comeback victory over Darebin last Saturday.

Poppy Schaap headlines the inclusions for Geelong this week, returning to the side after missing the clash with the Falcons through illness. 

Ruby Dale will make her debut for the Cats this week, donning the blue and white hoops for the first time after crossing over from Port Melbourne last year. 

Olivia Cicolini, Ella Firth and Caitlin Reid round out the inclusions for Geelong. 

Mekah Morrissy and Millie Lang are unavailable this weekend, with both players set to miss the Giants clash after a pair of strong performances last week against Darebin. 

Abbey McDonald has been withdrawn from the side due to illness, while Samantha Gooden and Olivia Stewart also make way.

The Cats will head north to Tom Wills Oval in Sydney this Saturday to battle the Giants, with the opening bounce from 1.00pm. 

All matches in the 2024 Smithy’s VFL and VFLW seasons will be live streamed free via the AFL website, AFL Live Official App and VFL App.
