Hawthorn VFLW will look to return fresh off a bye round with a win when it takes on Williamstown this Saturday.  

The match-up marks the first meeting between the two for the 2022 season, as the Hawks sit third on the ladder with seven wins to their name.

O’Neill: ‘I just love the versatility of this group

Olivia Meagher will make her brown and gold debut after coming across from Collingwood, as another five players feature among the inclusions for this round.

Meagher, who played with the Pies’ VFLW team in 2021, was elevated to their AFLW side ahead of the 2022 season.

The former Eastern Ranges captain has established herself as a versatile player who can play across all three lines.

Ainslie Kemp, Katelyn Cox, Kara Henderson, Kristy Stratton and Zoe Barbakos round out the other names that are set to bolster the in-form Hawthorn outfit. 

The game will kick off from 2pm at Downer Oval.
