Gippsland Power girls will take on Murray Bushrangers this Saturday March 24th at 2:45pm at RAMS Arena, Craigieburn.

The Bushrangers are currently undefeated and after the first two rounds, while Gippsland will be looking to build on their first win from last week.

Murray Bushrangers are running hot at the moment and will look to use their experience against the young Gippsland Power side. One of the most exciting battles of the day has to be Rebecca Webster going head-to-head with Tyla Hanks. Both players are among the top echelon in the competition and have been in super form this season. Up forward, the dangerous pocket rocket Julia Harvey or teammate Claudia McKimmie could have Power defender Emily Haeusler stand them, all three of whom are in good form.

Eloise Ashley-Cooper and Grace Egan represent some pretty potent half-back flankers and Holly Andrews and Nikia Webber will be looking to quell their influence. Julia Redmond has been a rock in defence, but she will be tested against Sophie Damon or Olivia Barber this weekend. Murray will head into the match as strong favourites, but with nothing to lose and plenty of speed, Gippsland has every chance of taking it up to one of the top sides in the competition.
