VFLW R8 team: Four changes for Bombers battle

Box Hill Coach Cherie O’Neill has made four changes to her side ahead of its big clash with Essendon on Saturday afternoon at Box Hill City Oval.

Hawthorn AFLW forward Aine McDonagh will return from a rib injury which has sidelined her since Round 1 while co-vice-captain Jordan Mifsud has also been named. 

The additions are rounded out by reliable ruck Grace Matser and Eastern Ranges product Hayley McLaughlin, who will make her VFLW debut.

Coming out of the side are Jess Vukic, Ava Campbell, Laura Elliott and Hannah Fosbrooke.
