Box Hill is setting its sights on a fourth win in five weeks as the side prepares for its Round 6 match-up against Carlton on Sunday.

The Hawks currently sit in sixth spot on the VFL ladder, while the Blues are in 10th position with one less win to their name to this point in the season.

Following their omission from the Hawks senior side, key position pair Tim O'Brien and Michael Hartley will return to the Box Hill side.

Tyler Brockman is also set to re-enter the 22 after being a late out in Round 5. 

ROUND 10 TEAM: Strong VFL form rewarded for young pair

Hawthorn VFLW will be keen to emulate its form from a month ago when it takes on Williamstown this weekend.

The Hawks were able to overcome the Seagulls on Anzac Day in the sides' Round 8 clash, as the club celebrated Meg Hutchins' 250th game.

A month later and the girls will once again be celebrating Hutchins after the stalwart announced her plans to retire at season's end during the week. 

Hawks premiership player Sarah Perkins is the good news story of selection this week, with the key forward named at centre half-forward. 

Following a season with Gold Coast in the AFLW, Perkins re-joins the brown and gold fold this week, along with fellow inclusions Kate Dudley, Sophie Bolding, Chloe Bain, Nadia von Bertouch and Ashanti Bush. 

Emily Gilder, Chloe O'Malley, Katherine Newton, Grace McRae (unavailable), Matilda Hardy (unavailable) and Phoebe McWilliams (calf) will all miss this week's game.
