Head coach Mike Ruthven has selected his side to take on the Brumbies in Campbelltown this Saturday.

The Women are looking to continue their trial success after defeating the Reds 29-0 in Roma two weeks ago.

In the forwards, Captain Piper Duck will make her long-awaited return to the sky blue jersey. Returning from an ankle injury that ruled her out of the WXV1 series and the majority of the Pac-Four series.

Duck will line up with Sera Naiqama who is also returning from injury to run out for the Tahs for the first time in 2024.

Wallaroo Player of the Year Eva Karpani will come off the bench with fellow international teammate Emily Chancellor.

In the backs, Arabella McKenzie and Layne Morgan look to continue to build their halves' chemistry. Ferguson moves into the centers with vice-captain Georgina Friedrichs.

Youngster Caitlyn Halse returns from injury to fill the number 15 jersey, whilst pocket rocket Waiaria Ellis will come off the bench to exploit the tired Brumbies pack.
