RMFL preview: Mannum must regroup against Mypolonga
Commentator Shane Snell previews round seven of the River Murray Football League's 2023 season.
A third of the River Murray football season is in the books, and a clear top three has started to emerge.
But there’s still plenty of time for things to go awry for the Suns, Blues and Bluds; and for the other six clubs to catch up.
Will this be the week things start to change?
Here’s what commentator Shane Snell reckons.
Mannum v Mypolonga
The Tigers have got their tails up at the moment after a close one against the league leaders last week.
Jack Zadow is in good form after overcoming last season’s injury, Jordan Hein has been a stand-out, Patty Davies is doing a job in the midfield, and Stephen Mills gives the side height and structure.
“I’m expecting a solid game from them,” Snell said.
“They’re a better team than what they’ve shown this year.”
Will it be enough to get past the Roos at Mannum Oval?
Having former Mail Medallist Blake Tabe back will help the home side’s cause – he was named best player in their four-point loss to Ramblers last week.
But Snell suggested this was still a club lacking in confidence.
“They’ve got the nucleus of a good side,” he said.
“They just need to put it all together.”
Shane’s tip: Mypolonga
