Collingwood will return to its second home in Tasmania this Friday night for its first official practice match for 2020.

The Magpies will battle it out against the Sunshine Coast Lightning.

The Pies will head south taking 10-woman squad including new recruit, Jodi-Ann Ward and replacement player, Julia Wooley.

Ash Brazill will sit out the match due to her commitments with Collingwood’s AFLW season. Both Madi and Kelsey Browne will support the team from the sidelines while they progress with their recovery from ACL injuries.

This will mark the Magpies’ first official outing on the court since taking out the Super Club tournament in New Zealand late last year.

The game poses a great opportunity to test out some new combinations and refine on court skills ahead of round one.

The game will kick off at 7pm on Friday night at Derwent Entertainment Centre.
