Ins & Outs: Roar greats set for final round farewell

Clare Polkinghorne Emily Gielnik

Brisbane Roar favourites Clare Polkinghorne and Emily Gielnik are all set to run out in orange one last time after being named in an extended 17-player squad for this Sunday’s crucial Westfield W-League final round clash with Newcastle Jets.

Head Coach Jake Goodship has a fit and confident group to select from as the team aims to keep the pressure on its rivals with top two spots still in dispute.

The Roar remain second on the ladder after going into last weekend’s bye following a convincing 4-2 win over Adelaide United.

Anna Margraf has been promoted into matchday contention for the Round 14 fixture, while young defender Holly McQueen – who signed her first Westfield W-League contract during the week – will become eligible for selection after this weekend’s game.
