North Melbourne has made five changes for its final home-and-away game of the VFLW season.

The selection mix could prove crucial, with the potential for the Kangaroos’ finals fate to fall into their own hands hinging on one of Saturday’s results.

Four points and 17 per cent separate Steph Binder’s side and sixth-placed Collingwood.

If the Pies go down to fourth-placed Geelong by a healthy margin, the pressure will be on to win well against the Southern Saints in Sandringham on Sunday.

Forward-ruck Taylor Moss returns to bring height to the Roos’ offence, while Annalise Vine will offer aerial power around the ground.

The team will have three Tasmanian representatives, with Devils prospect Candice Belbin to reprise her role in the team and her junior captain Jess Blair to return.

Launceston’s Dearne Taylor has also been named.

Marli Klaumanns-Moller will return to the side, having successfully rehabilitated the torn anterior cruciate ligament she suffered early last season.

The 21-year-old has won a spot on the interchange, on the back of strong form for affiliate team Melbourne University.

Audrey Rhodes, Hannah Ibrahim and Ellie Macdonald have made way, while Britt Gibson and Tasmanian Meghan Gaffney won’t play.

Brooke Slaney will lead the team out in lieu of Molly Eastman, who finished up as a Roo after Saturday’s win over the Western Bulldogs.

Eastman will link up with the Sydney Swans ahead of their AFL Women’s debut in August.

Be there to support the girls as they face off with the Saints from 9.45am AEST at Trevor Barker Beach Oval on Sunday.

IN: 13 Murrihy, 14 Klaumanns-Moller, 29 Moss, 32 Vine, 37 Blair
