Best & Fairest Rosie Dillon will come into the side for the first time this season as St Kilda eyes a third win on the bounce this Saturday against Hawthorn.

The 27-year-old midfielder comes into the line-up in place of Nicola Xenos, who will sit out Round 6 after being handed a one-game sanction for a high hit on Elisabeth Georgostathis from last Friday night.

It will be just the second time the Saints and Hawks have met in the AFLW competition, with the former snaring a win against the brown and gold in Round 2 of last season at Box Hill City Oval.

Deanna JolliffeCaitlin Matthews and Simone Nalder are on standby for Saturday as emergencies.

St Kilda will look to square its ledger to 3-3 this Saturday against Hawthorn, with the opening bounce set for 3:05pm.
