RMIT will travel to Mazenod to seek its first win in Round 6.
The Redbacks will enter Saturday’s clashes with their tails up after producing their most encouraging and cohesive performances yet across both senior and reserves sides in their Round 5 clashes with Yarra Old Grammarians. The reserves kicked their first ever goal and held a lead early in the last quarter before being overrun while the seniors had their narrowest defeat yet against the ladder-leading Yarra.
The reserves will kick off the day at Columbia Reserve at 10.20. The Redbacks’ will be bolstered by the inclusion of Eliza Goulding while Alison Ross has been named in the ruck for the first time.
After impressing as a key position player with the reserves, Beth Scutt becomes the latest Redback to debut at senior level. Elin Averius is listed as an emergency for the seniors and will play her first game if called up on match day. Tori Quilligan will play after recovering from a rib injury last week while the seniors also regain Neve O’Connor (named at centre half back), captain April Goldring (midfield and key forward Izzy Symes, who has recovered from a back injury sustained in Round 1.
