Gippsland Power boys will take on Murray Bushrangers this Sunday March 25th at 2:30pm at Swinburne Centre (Punt Road Oval), Richmond.

Murray Bushrangers’ experienced side will take on the youthful Gippsland Power team with plenty of draftable talent on show. Zane Barzen and Hudson Garoni  are two that will turn heads up forward, while the Murray spine which also includes Tom Boyd and Ben Kelly is imposing for any opposition. Mark Marriott will be a top ruck prospect this year after a good bottom-age season, rucking to the likes of Ely Smith and Laitham Vandermeer, the latter of whom has returned as a 19 year-old.

For Gippsland, new captain Xavier Duursma will team up with the likes of Austin Hodge and Caleb Serong in the midfield, while overager Matthew McGannon will use his pace off half-back. Irving Mosquito and Sam Flanders make an exciting duo inside the forward 50, while dual key position player Kyle Reid has been named in defence, and Ryan Henkel will start in the ruck.
