ADELAIDE will receive a boost ahead of its Sunday clash against North Melbourne, with defender Sarah Allan named to play her first game of the season after overcoming a hamstring injury.

The Crows will be out for redemption after suffering their first loss of the year last week, but face an almighty challenge in the top-four Kangaroos.

Ellie Gavalas is back in the Roos' line-up, with Ruby Tripodi making way.

Rising Star winner Hannah Ewings returns to Port Adelaide's team for the first time since she was dropped for not meeting performance standards in round seven.

Olivia Levicki makes way for Ewings in Port's clash against Hawthorn, while the Hawks have named an unchanged line-up

Collingwood has dropped Imogen Evans in favour of Charlotte Taylor and Jo Lin for its clash against Sydney, with Lauren Butler to miss through injury.

Aimee Whelan comes into the Swans' side with Paige Sheppard to miss through concussion.

Georgia Gall will make her debut for the Demons on Saturday afternoon after Maddi Gay was withdrawn due to hamstring soreness.
