The GWS Giants have included four new faces in their 23-person squad to take on Collingwood in Melbourne on Sunday afternoon.

Nowra’s Maddy Collier, who returns from an elbow injury, as well as Louise Stephenson, Jodie Hicks and Pippa Smyth have all been added to the team with Renee Tomkins and Maddy Boyd the confirmed omissions at this stage.

Being a Sunday game, the Giants will trim their team to 21 at 12pm on Friday.

Defender Stephenson, forward Hicks and midfielder Collier could make their returns to the side after missing the round two clash with Carlton while, if selected, Nelson Bay product Smyth would make her AFLW debut.

Midfielder Britt Tully looks set to take on the Magpies, despite injuring her shoulder in the loss to the Blues last Friday night.

The Giants head to Olympic Park Oval to take on Collingwood in round three with both teams looking for their first win of the season.

The game begins at 4:35pm on Sunday.
