The VFLW Hawks' destiny is in their own hands.

A win against Collingwood on Saturday and the reigning premiers lock in a spot to another September campaign.

But that won't be an easy feat.

The Magpies sit in second place on the ladder, just a matter of percentage behind the top of the table Southern Saints and two wins ahead of the third-placed Western Bulldogs. 

Hawthorn has named a strong side ahead of their season-defining clash with the 23 ready to put it all on the table in pursuit of a return to finals action.

Box Hill finally made a return to the winners' list last week after failing to record a victory in the previous month.

The Hawks currently sit in ninth position, two premiership points behind the Casey Demons.

But the Demons have a bye this weekend, meaning eighth spot is there for the taking.

The hosts will likely go in favourite to this game being two places ahead of the Pies on the ladder, but Collingwood got the better of Box Hill the last time these sides met in Round 8.

Hawthorn VFLW will host Collingwood at Box Hill City Oval on Saturday at 11.30am, before Box Hill take on the Pies at 2pm.
