Nicole Bresnehan is set to return to the North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos’ line-up for the do-or-die clash against Fremantle on Saturday. 

Bresnehan has missed the last three games due to a wrist injury, but comes into the side, presented by Powershop, in place of omitted defender Beth Lynch. 

The Tasmanian was a strong performer in the opening three rounds of the season, with her ability to quell the influence of the opposition’s best small forwards a valuable asset for the Roos.

Lynch will be joined by Emma Humphries as one of two emergencies for the Round 7 fixture at Fremantle Oval.

A win for North will take it through to the finals.
