A NEW chap­ter in the rivalry be­tween the West Coast Ea­gles and Fre­man­tle Dock­ers will be writ­ten in Bur­swood this week­end when the first derby be­tween the clubs' women's teams kicks off.

The his­toric first clash be­tween the two teams will be played at Op­tus Sta­dium on Satur­day from 4.10pm.

But the first derby of 2020 will be a re­ver­sal of roles for the two West Aus­tralian clubs.

The Ea­gles will be the younger sib­lings, hav­ing joined the AFLW just this sea­son, while Fre­man­tle were a foun­da­tion club, play­ing in the in­au­gu­ral sea­son in 2017.
