TEAMS: Roos lose defender, Tigers stick with winning formula

NORTH Melbourne has been forced to make two changes for its NAB AFL Women's round six trip to face Richmond at the Swinburne Centre on Friday night.

Defender Tahni Nestor misses through injury, while Vivien Saad has been rubbed out after the Roos opted not to challenge her one-match ban for a high hit on Carlton's Tayla Harris.

Jasmine Grierson returns after being managed last week and has been included in the Roos' line-up alongside Georgia Hammond.

The Tigers go in unchanged from the side that claimed the club's first ever AFLW victory last week with Christina Bernardi and Laura McClelland emergencies.
