TUESDAY TEAMS: Lions set for sister act, gun Blue back

BRISBANE will turn to debutant pair Zimmie Farquharson and Ruby Svarc to help cover for stars Kate Lutkins, Dakota Davidson and Sophie Conway.

The Lions have not played since losing both players to an ACL and foot injury respectively in round one, sitting out round two due to AFL health and safety protocols.

Winger Conway is the sole player from the round one side to still be missing under those protocols, with Svarc, sister of Cathy, set to slot into her position.

Farquharson was a first-round selection for the Lions in the 2020 NAB AFLW Draft, but the zippy forward was made to bide her time in the QAFLW due to the club's depth.

As previously announced, Sharni Webb will slot into defence, playing her first official game since giving birth to daughter Billie last year.

Opponent Carlton has brought back winger Brooke Walker, replacing Charlotte Hammans in the 21.

Walker was a late withdrawal against Geelong last week due to illness, with Hammans her replacement at the time.

On Tuesday morning the Blues confirmed they would also lose Gab Pound and Jess Good due to health and safety protocols, with debutants Keeley Sherar and Brooke Vickers coming in to replace them.
