Launceston’s Courtney Webb will make her debut after being upgraded to Carlton’s senior list ahead of Friday’s clash with the Western Bulldogs.
The 18-year-old, who is also a talented cricketer who holds an Tasmanian Roar contract, was the 17th selection in this year’s rookie draft.
But it wasn’t good news for Wynyard’s Emma Humphries in the AFLW, with midfielder dropped for Melbourne’s clash with Collingwood in Alice Springs following her five disposal outing against Fremantle. She has been named as an emergency.
Meanwhile, Alex Pearce is in line for his first game of football in 645 days after being named in Fremantle’s JLT Series squad for Sunday’s clash with Adelaide at Perth’s Leederville Oval.
The 22-year-old key defender from Ulverstone last played in round 9, 2016, when he broke his leg against Richmond.
Other Tasmanians included in squads include fellow North-West Coast product Brady Grey at the Dockers, while Devonport’s Ben Brown and Clarence’s Mitchell Hibberd have been included for North Melbourne ahead of their clash with Melbourne at Kingston’s Twin Ovals.
Clarence’s Josh Green has been picked for Essendon against RIchmond at Wangaratta, with the Tigers including Jack Riewoldt, also originally from Clarence, and George Town ruckman Toby Nankervis.
