The Crows are set to blood four AFLW debutants and one Club debutant in its season opener against Brisbane this Saturday.

Five players from the 2019 AFLW draft have been named in the side that will face the Lions at Hickey Park from 4.10pm AEST.

Former Giant Courtney Gum was selected alongside new Crows Najwa Allen, Chelsea Biddell, Nicole Campbell and Madison Newman.

An experienced midfielder/forward, Gum was named the AFL Players Association MVP in her debut AFLW season with GWS.

She impressed in the Crows’ second pre-season trial game, kicking two goals in the side’s victory over Fremantle. 

Allen - a hard-running utility - was Adelaide’s second pick in the 2019 draft after taking out the 2019 SANFLW best and fairest award in her debut season.

The 25-year-old led the League for disposals and kicked seven goals in 10 games to be awarded the 2019 SANFLW Coaches Trophy and a place in the Team of the Year.

Biddell - a versatile key position player - joined the Crows after finishing second in the SANFLW goal kicking award for 2019 despite being limited to eight games due to injury.

The 21-year-old also produced a strong 2018 season, being named in the SANFLW Team of the Year and taking out West Adelaide’s best and fairest.

Adelaide’s third pick in the draft, Campbell arrived at West Lakes on the back of finishing in the SANFLW Team of the Year for 2019 after winning a premiership with South Adelaide.

The line-breaking half-back impressed coach Matthew Clarke in the Crows’ first trial match against GWS and was named in the best players.

Newman - a skillful rebounding defender - became a Crow after picking up All Australian honours in 2019 and starring for the Central Allies in the 2019 NAB AFLW U18 Championships.

The 18-year-old was also named in the Team of the Year and is a member of the Crows Women’s Academy.

On Tuesday, the Crows ruled out co-captain Erin Phillips, ruck Rhiannon Metcalfe and young forward Chloe Scheer as the trio continue their rehabilitation from ACL injuries.

Winger Deni Varnhagen was also ruled out after injuring her knee in Adelaide’s second trial match.

The Crows will travel to Queensland on Friday ahead of their Round One clash with the Lions on Saturday afternoon.

The game will be broadcast on 7mate in Adelaide from 4.30pm ACST.
