Hawthorn will take a good mix of youth and experience into its VFLW semi final clash with the Southern Saints on Sunday at Box Hill.

A host of young talents headline Hawthorn’s ins with Abby Favell, Cadhla Schmidli, Jade Hutchinson, Jade Wise and Sarah Humm earning an opportunity to play semi final footy for the brown and gold.

Hawthorn last faced the Southern Saints in Round 8 and got the job done by 21 points.

With a new-look side this time around, the Hawks will be looking to the experience of Katelyn Cox, Nadia von Bertouch, Kristy Stratton, Jessie Williams, Jordan Mifsud, Jess Trend and captain Nic Garner to keep their finals hopes alive.

Should the Hawks defeat the Saints, they will advance to the VFLW preliminary final next Saturday at North Port Oval. If they lose, their finals campaign will end.
