AFLW: Round 2 team announced

AFLW: Dream Debut Hear from our four debutants from our Round 1 win over the Adelaide Crows.

Following a strong victory over the Adelaide Crows last weekend, Brisbane Lions AFLW Coach Craig Starcevich has opted to make just one change to his side for Sunday's match against the Western Bulldogs.

Speedy midfielder Nat Exon is set to make her Club debut and will start in the back pocket. 

Exon joined the Lions at the end of last season along with Bella Ayre following a trade with Carlton. 

She is renowned for her pressure, elite kicking skills and work ethic. 

“We’ve only made the one change after a successful combination last week." Coach Craig Starcevich said.

“We thought we would add another runner to our group. Nat will give us some great leg speed and drive which we think will be useful on big ground like Brendale.”

Exon's selection in this weekend's team comes at the expense of Megan Hunt who is named as an emergency.

Ayre is also named as an emergency 

The match begins at 3.35PM AEST at South Pine Sports Complex at Brendale and admission is free.
