The South Australian native has had to previous stints with the team in Red but also spent a season with Canberra United.

"It's always fun to play a former club," McCormick said.

"It's pretty close to my heart. I obviously spent a bit of time there so it will be good and I'm looking forward to it."

McCormick made the move to Roar on a half-season contract in order to also take part in AFLW pre-season with her team the Adelaide Crows. 

"It's been good to be around the girls," she said.

"It's a new environment but getting looked after well which is nice."

Adelaide has only played one game so far this season, which came in the opening round against Melbourne Victory. 

Unfortunately, the team in Red haven't had the best luck when playing Roar with their last win coming during the 2015/16 season when the scores finished up 2-1 courtesy of an Emily Condon goal.

For Roar, it will also be a tough challenge to make the final call on who starts the match with the full squad finally coming together.

Japanese World Cup winner Yuki Nagasato is set to make her W-League debut against Adelaide after arriving in Brisbane last week.

"It's great having Yuki here, she is a world-class footballer and she just lifts the training environment, she will certainly bring a lot to the team," McCormick said.

"It's great to have people pushing for positions as well, it always keeps the environment challenging and competitive so everyone is sort of held accountable." 

Brisbane Roar takes on Adelaide United on Sunday, November 18 at Lions Stadium from 3pm AEST.
