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.
“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.”

Richmond has also recalled the services of AFLW-listed midfielder Maddy Brancatisano and livewire Emma Gunn for the Bulldogs clash.
Out of the side that defeated Casey by 39 points last weekend is Hannah Burchell.
The undefeated Tigers are currently placed third on the ladder while the Western Bulldogs sit in sixth.
Also facing the Bulldogs at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday afternoon is the VFL Tigers, who will open the double header at 1.00pm before the 4.00pm VFLW clash.
