Experienced midfielder Sophie Conway will notch up her 25th AFLW game in Sunday's clash, named in the midfield alongside Orla O'Dwyer and Ally Anderson. 

The formidable Lions defence will return in 2022, led by backline stalwarts Bre Koenen, Kate Lutkins and Shannon Campbell, alongside Nat Grider and Indy Tahau. 

Courtney Hodder will resume her position in the forward line after a breakout debut season in 2021 that saw her claim Goal of the Year. 

She'll be joined by fan favourites Jess Wuetschner and Dakota Davidson in the forward line, with Belle Dawes and Greta Bodey named at half forward.

2021 draftees Lulu Pullar and Luka Yoshida Martin have been named as the emergencies for this Sunday's clash.
