Debutant Tahlia Meyer headlines five inclusions for the VFLW Hawks as the side sets its sights on a sixth consecutive win this Saturday. 

Eliza Shannon, Emma Humphries, Izzy Khoury and Tegan Cunningham round out the five names that are set to bolster the in-form Hawthorn outfit. 

Despite it being her first game in the brown and gold, Meyer brings a wealth of experience to the team, having played 10 AFLW games with St Kilda - including three in the 2022 season.

The Hawks will host the Southern Saints at Box Hill City Oval on Saturday at 10am.

It will be Cherie O'Neill's side's third consecutive home game at the venue, with the team excelling defensively over the past fortnight having conceded just 11 points across the past two games.
