Adelaide has made one change ahead of its Semi-Final against Sydney at Norwood Oval on Saturday night.

The Crows have opted to bring in small forward Jess Waterhouse, who returns for the first time since the Round Nine win against North Melbourne.

Defender Najwa Allen has been omitted.

“We are hoping Jess will add some firepower for us up forward,” Adelaide Head of Women’s Football Phil Harper said.

“Naj is desperately unlucky but she has had such an interrupted season with injury and suspension, which has counted against her for this week.”

Allen has been named as an emergency, alongside wing Deni Varnhagen and utility Brooke Tonon.

Adelaide will be looking to bounce back after losing its Qualifying Final against Brisbane last Saturday.

The Crows earned a double chance after finishing the minor round top of the ladder.

Sydney, meanwhile, won its Elimination Final against Gold Coast, helping it advance to the second week of the finals series.

Harper said the Crows were keen to line up against the Swans, having not played them before.

“We have been impressed with the way they (Sydney) are playing so it promises to be a great contest,” Harper said.

“Our team had nine wins in the minor round, which has afforded a second chance at home and we look forward to playing some good football in front of our Members and supporters, who are so important to us.

“We urge as many of our supporters to come to Norwood on Saturday night to be loud and vocal as they always are in support of our team.”

Adelaide plays Sydney in the first Semi-Final at Norwood Oval on Saturday, November 18, at 7.15pm.
