The Redbacks’ development over the past month will be assessed in their return clash with South Melbourne Districts at Bundoora Oval on Saturday.
Both RMIT sides are coming off their first ever wins against North Brunswick AFC and now must prove it wasn’t a fluke in Round 8. The Redbacks’ first match in VAFA Premier C in Round 4 was against the Swans, who prevailed in both reserve and senior grades.
The reserves will host South Melbourne from 10am with Courtney Yelds, Alessandra Sottile, Emily Sinyavker, Nicole Lane and Bri Daw returning to the side.
Just a week after debuting in the reserves’ 29-point win over the Bulls, Lily Paterson and Bec McConnell have been named on the interchange to play their first match in the seniors from 12pm.
