Gemma Houghton and Lisa Webb have come into the team to take on the Pies this Saturday.

Two changes have been made to Freo’s AFLW team that will face Collingwood on Saturday 10 February at Optus Stadium.

Gemma Houghton and new recruit Lisa Webb will come into the team for Tiah Haynes (omitted) and the injured Brianna Green.

Houghton missed last weekend’s round one match against the Bulldogs after having an interrupted pre-season due to injury but AFLW football manager Wade Spilcker says Houghton is raring to go.

“Both girls were unlucky to miss out on playing round one, but Gemma is up and firing now,” Spilcker said.

“We know she has great athleticism and can play in a number of positions on the ground.

“Lisa and Gemma are both really athletic, strong runners who will assist with ball movement in the wide open spaces at Optus Stadium.

“It will be great to have them both out there,” Spilcker said.

Fremantle will take on Collingwood at 4.10pm on Saturday 10 February at Optus Stadium
