Fremantle have selected two debutants for Saturday’s clash with GWS at Fremantle Oval on Saturday.

McAuliffe and Jade de Melo have been named on the field with de Melo starting in the forward pocket and McAuliffe at centre half back. 

Fremantle will be looking to make amends for the heartbreaking draw between the two sides in 2017 at Blacktown ISP Oval, with Freo giving up an 11-point half-time lead to see the Giants split the honours. 

Freo go into the game in fourth with two wins and two losses while the Giants are sixth with one win and a draw.

De Melo, 25, replaced Brianna Green on Fremantle’s AFLW list in February, who was ruled out for the season with an ACL injury.

A product of East Fremantle, de Melo played her first season of Australian Rules football in the WAWFL in 2017, and was drafted to Fremantle with pick no.10 in the 2017 Rookie Draft.

McAuliffe was added to Fremantle’s primary list after October’s AFLW draft, taken as a key position player with the ability to play forward and in defence, playing in the backline for WA in the U18 National Championships and as a forward for Swan Districts in the 2017 WAWFL Grand Final.

The pair come in for Ashley Sharp and Jodie White, who have been omitted.

Belinda Smith, Emily McGuire, Mel Caulfield, Cassie Davidson and Stephanie Cain have been named on the bench while Tiah Haynes and Gemma Houghton are the emergencies.
