Two debutants and a returning Foundation Lion headline Craig Starcevich’s best 21 ahead of Tuesday night’s Pride Round clash against Metricon.

Despite the side having faced the challenges of COVID-19 over recent weeks, only three changes have been made to side since their last appearance in Round 1. 

28-year old Ruby Svarc will join her sister Cathy when the Lions run out on Tuesday night.

It’ll be the first time the pair have officially played together, with Ruby following her sister north from their home in regional Victoria to pursue an AFLW career.

While Dalby’s own Zimmorlei Farquharson will finally get her chance to don the Lions’ guernsey on in Tuesday’s Pride Round clash at Metricon.

It comes off the back of an impressive practice match performance from the 19-year-old, that saw her kick three goals in the Lions’ 61-point defeat of the Gold Coast Suns.

Foundation Lion Sharni Webb will get her chance to return to the park after a long road back to AFLW competition, named in the side just seven months after giving birth to her daughter, Billie.

Captain Bre Koenen will take charge of the backline in lieu of general Kate Lutkins. She’ll be supported by young gun Nat Grider, recent debutant Phoebe Monahan, and Foundation Lion Shannon Campbell.

Sophie Conway will miss the Round 3 clash due to AFL Health and Safety Protocol.
