The Western Bulldogs have made just the one change ahead of this Sunday’s clash with Collingwood, with Emma Mackie returning to the side in place of Bailey Hunt.

Mackie was taken with the 27th pick in the 2017 NAB AFLW Draft and will play her second game in Dogs colours after making her debut in Round 1 against Fremantle at VU Whitten Oval.

Known for her ruthless competitive streak, Mackie won Box Hill’s 2017 best and fairest award.

The Bulldogs currently sit in top spot on the AFLW ladder with a percentage of 200 after last Friday’s night’s record breaking 73-point win over Carlton at VU Whitten Oval, while the Magpies are fresh off a commanding 34-point win over Melbourne.
