Round 6 Preview:
Bulleen Templestowe vs Power House
The House have showed for two weeks now that they can and will compete in Division 2, however, the Bullants will match up very well against them and are more comfortable at their home fortress. This game is a make or break for the House who have a chance to push for top four, as well as Bulleen who need to avoid dropping into the bottom two. Mohandas (Bulleen) and Stubbs (Power House) will be shooting it out in front of goals, so it will come down to which sides defence holds up for four quarters and stops what could be an on slaught of goals.
