Western Bulldogs recruit Maggie Gorham will make her AFLW debut tonight against Geelong at GMHBA Stadium.

The 21-year-old replaces Rylie Wilcox (illness) in the starting 21, after initially being named an emergency for the clash.

Gorham was signed as an unrestricted free agent this year.

Dom Carruthers and Bree McFarlane will also play their maiden AFLW games, while Elle Bennetts will run out for the 50th time. 

The Bulldogs and Cats will go head-to-head at 5.05pm AEST tonight (Saturday 2 September).
