TEAM NEWS: Roar Women squad confirmed for Newcastle trip


A fit & healthy Roar Women squad is sure to create positive selection headaches for Head Coach Mel Andreatta ahead of tomorrow night’s Westfield W-League clash against the Jets at McDonald Jones Stadium (6:30pm KO).

Allira Toby & young attacker Anna Margraf have both been promoted to the 17-player squad for the trip to Newcastle, which includes a mixture of both experienced international talent and promising local stars.

Toby missed the clash against the Reds a fortnight ago while Margraf is in contention for her second Westfield W-League appearance after making her debut in Round 1.

Japanese World Cup winner Yuki Nagasato is also in contention for her second BRFC appearance while Hayley Raso remains the only player unavailable for selection as she continues her recovery from a serious back injury.
