Boom Carl­ton re­cruit Tayla Har­ris will take on her for­mer team­mates for the first time when the Blues host the Lions on Satur­day night.

No doubt the for­ward will get some ex­tra at­ten­tion af­ter she ques­tioned the pro­fes­sion­al­ism at the Lions, which didn’t go down all that well with her old club.

The Blues have lost their best player in Bri­anna Davey, who rup­tured her ACL last week­end, but the lad­der lead­ers have still opened as $1.70 favourites with Lad­brokes.

“Carl­ton’s for­ward line will be the win­ning dif­fer­ence, with Tayla Har­ris and Darcy Vescio a for­mi­da­ble duo in­side the arc,” Lad­brokes head AFL book­maker John Seaton said. “Ex­pect them to share in 4 or more goals.”

The Ade­laide Crows ($2.10) are ex­pected to be with­out Erin Phillips once again and are out­siders to beat the West­ern Bull­dogs ($1.73), while pre­mier­ship favourites Mel­bourne ($1.45) are dom­i­nant favourites to ac­count for Fre­man­tle ($2.75).
