RMFL preview: Lokan Cup will be on the line at Tailem Bend
Commentator Shane Snell casts his eye over the round six, 2023 fixture in the River Murray Football League.
Three clubs are starting to rise above the rest in the River Murray Football League’s A grade as the season rolls on.
For all we said last week about the balance in the competition, there were four blow-outs last weekend.
Where does that leave the RMFL’s clubs ahead of this weekend’s matches?
Here’s what commentator Shane Snell thinks.
Tailem Bend v Jervois
The Lokan Cup will be on the line at Jaensch Park this Saturday, and Jervois will be favourites to take it back home with them.
“They’ve got too much firepower,” Snell said.
“I don’t think Tailem Bend’s defence will be enough to hold Josh Scott and Ben Hansen.
“Peter Zarantonello is in red-hot form, and they’ve got strength on every line.”
The Eagles have had time to reset after failing to kick a goal against the Cats a fortnight ago.
Ageing Nathan Stark, Daniel Perks, Ben Rossi and on-baller Aiden Coakley will need more support from the rest of the team this time around.
They’ll hope to get players back from injury and to make the game a contest.
Shane’s tip: Jervois
Coorong v Imperials
