THREE Bendigo Thunder players have been named in Vic Country's team to play rivals Vic Metro this week. 

Alana McNabb, Sarah-Jane Baldwin and Amanda Carrod were selected in the 22-person team. 

They have been selected alongside some of the state's best female players including Daisy Pearce, who is the current captain of the Darebin Falcons. 

Players from Melbourne Uni, Sunbury, Wyndhamvale, North Geelong and the Eastern Devils fill up the rest of the open team.

The trio of players were a part of the Thunder's undefeated run to back-to-back premierships in last year's north west division.

The Vic Country, Vic Metro game is set to highlight some of the best female footballers from the Victorian Women's Football League.

The open team will be coached by St Albans' Sean Potter and Melbourne Uni's Mick Sandry.

For the first time AFL Victoria has expanded the concept to include an under-21 game. 

Bendigo Thunder duo Grace Campbell and Lily Campbell will line-up with Vic Country. 

The final teams have been selected following two training sessions. 

Players from across all divisions were given the chance to impress selectors in a bid to win a place in the two teams. 

Bendigo's Paul Lefevre will manage both teams.

Bendigo Thunder has yet to win a game in its first season in the state's premier women's competition. 

Games will be played at Whitten Oval on Saturday. 

The under-21 game will kick off at 12 noon while the open game will be at 2pm.
