Round five, which marks the AFLW's Indigenous Round for 2021, will kick off with an intriguing clash at GMHBA Stadium on Friday night, when two of the competition's winless teams, Geelong and Richmond, do battle.

The Cats will be buoyed by their home crowd while the Tigers will take confidence from their narrow loss to a more-seasoned Carlton side in round four. 

At the other end of the round, West Coast and Gold Coast will also seek a breakthrough victory when they clash at Mineral Resources Park in the final game of the weekend. 

The Western Bulldogs will host Greater Western Sydney at VU Whitten Oval in Saturday's first game, while North Melbourne will look to rebound from its round four loss to the Magpies when it hosts a resurgent Carlton in Launceston on Saturday night. 

On Sunday, Adelaide will tackle one of 2021's big improvers, St Kilda, at Norwood Oval ahead of the Pies-Demons and Eagles-Suns games.
