SARAH HALVORSEN SET TO MAKE HER DEBUT IN THE AFLW

Former Newcastle City player Sarah Halvorsen will make her debut in the AFLW competition this Saturday, when the Giants take on Richmond at Wagga Wagga.

Coach Alan McConnell says the 24-year-old is being rewarded for her persistence, with the engineer still commuting from Newcastle to Sydney for every training session.

Fellow Hunter product, Lisa Steane, has already impressed in her first season with GWS, picked as one of the best on ground against the Kangaroos in round two.
