VFLW: Frederick to debut in Bulldogs clash

Frederick to debut against the Western Bulldogs Sabrina Frederick will be making her Richmond VFLW debut against the Western Bulldogs at the Whitten Oval this Saturday.

Richmond Women’s recruit Sabrina Frederick will make her Yellow and Black debut this Saturday when the VFLW Tigers take on the Western Bulldogs at VU Whitten Oval.

A dual AFLW All-Australian and two-time Grand Finalist with the Brisbane Lions, the forward/ruck star will give the Tigers an injection of experience in their Round 9 clash.

In her first-ever VFLW game, the 22-year-old will showcase her craft in the forward line, where she’s known for her strong contested marking.

Speaking on Richmond Media’s Our Stripes podcast, Frederick said her pre-game nerves were overridden by overwhelming excitement.

“I’m a little bit nervous, it’s been a while since I played in a different guernsey and a different environment,” she said.

“I think it will be a lot of fun and I’m really excited, I just want to get out there and play.”
