Head coach Mike Ruthven has selected his match-day 25 to take on the touring Tokyo Phoenix in Concord on Saturday.

The Women are two from two in their trials and are coming off the back of a dominant performance against the Brumbies, which saw them leave Campbelltown as 41-7 victors.

In the forwards, Emily Robinson returns after an ankle injury sustained in Roma, Annabelle Codey will team up with Atasi Lafai in the second row. Emily Chancellor will get her first start in 2024 at open-side.

Ruthven has left nothing to chance this weekend with an exciting backline that includes 5 current Wallaroos.

Katrina Barker slots back into inside centre, whilst speedster Maya Stewart returns for her first game in 2024.

The bench includes Wallaroo Eva Karpani and three 16-year-olds, Millie Parker, Ruby Anderson and Waiaria Ellis.
