Hannah Scott will play her first game of the 2021 NAB AFLW season on Sunday, in the Western Bulldogs’ annual Hampson-Hardeman Cup battle against Melbourne.
Scott was part of the earlier exhibition matches in 2015, while fellow inclusion Dani Marshall has also been recalled.
Scott and Marshall will replace Angelica Gogos (ankle) and Nell Morris-Dalton.
Gogos sustained an ankle injury during the Bulldogs’ round three win over Geelong and is set to miss the next couple of weeks.
Ash Guest has been cleared to play this weekend after suffering an eye injury against the Cats, while last week’s debutant Isabella Grant has kept her spot in the team.
Bailey Hunt will spend another week out as she recovers from a calf strain.
The Bulldogs will be looking to add to their two-game winning streak when they meet the undefeated Dees at VU Whitten Oval on Sunday afternoon.
The match will be broadcast live on Channel 7, with the first bounce at 3.10pm.
Show you are Made of Red, White and Blue by signing up as an AFLW member for as little as $50 per adult today.
