THE WESTERN Bulldogs will need a Plan B for Saturday's NAB AFL Women's Grand Final against the Brisbane Lions after skipper Katie Brennan's suspension was upheld by the AFL Appeals Tribunal on Thursday afternoon.   

Forward Kirsten McLeod comes in to the 21 to replace Brennan. McLeod, originally named an emergency, has played three games this season

The Lions will go in unchanged after thumping Greater Western Sydney last Friday night.

First-year midfielder Jordan Zanchetta and defender Nicole Hildebrand, who hasn't played since round five when she copped a heavy head knock, are listed as the emergencies.    

Saturday's Grand Final starts at 12.35pm AEDT and will be streamed live on and the AFLW Official App.
