In Round 6 of the boys TAC Cup, Gippsland Power take on Sandringham Dragons at Morwell Rec Reserve on Sunday May 13th at 1pm.

The first game on Sunday is the clash between the Gippsland Power and Sandringham Dragons. The Dragons have slipped since losing their APS players and now find themselves at an even win-loss ledger of 3-3. For the Power, they are just two points outside the top three sides and are having a fantastic start to the season with just the one defeat and one draw so far. At home, the Power will be keen to make the most of a depleted Dragons outfit and continue to push on after another great win in round five against the Eastern Ranges.

For Gippsland, the Power have a number of quality midfielders who will be looking to match the likes of Stocker and McNeish in the middle. Riley Baldi has been important around the stoppages, and captain Xavier Duursma has made an impact off the wing. The returning Austin Hodge along with the likes of Nick Lowden and Boadie Motton shows off the depth Gippsland has, as well as bottom-age talents in Brock Smith and Caleb Serong who can rotate through the centre square. The contest might loom as one Gippsland will be favourites for, but Sandringham will be hoping its next tier of players can stand up and cause an upset away from home.
