The VFLW Bendigo Bank Cats will be looking to make it five wins in a row in their Round 9 match against the Western Bulldogs at Deakin University Elite Sports Precinct at 1:00pm on Saturday.
Geelong AFLW Best and Fairest Amy McDonald is set to play her first VFLW game for 2021, named among a handful of inclusions.
Fellow AFLW Cats Rene Caris, Rocky Cranston and Maddy Keryk will join McDonald in coming into the team, while VFLW captain Michelle Fedele is also set to return.
The Cats and Bulldogs last met in Round 5 - the start of the Cats' current winning streak - when Geelong kept the Western Bulldogs goalless in a convincing 34-point win. The Bulldogs will be hungry for success however, with the side in strong form after back-to-back wins.
Geelong currently sits in third place on the ladder, a game clear of the Casey Demons and Essendon after a dominant 64-point victory against the Darebin Falcons last week.
Updates will be available on the Catswomens Twitter and Instagram pages.
