Launceston local Abbey Green will enjoy a dream debut in her home town, after being named in the 21 for Saturday’s match.
The North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos’ team, proudly powered by Powershop, features Green and fellow inclusion Jas Grierson.
The Roos’ final selection at the 2019 Draft, Green shot to prominence with some impressive performances in the pre-season, playing predominantly in the ruck.
At 183 centimetres, she provides more valuable support for Emma King, alongside fellow first-year player Vivien Saad.
Grierson played all seven games throughout 2019, and returns after missing last week’s loss to Melbourne.
Daria Bannister will miss at least the next three weeks after fracturing her clavicle in Round 1, while Beth Lynch has been omitted.
