Things to do in Murray Bridge: August 6-12, 2021

Netty and footy are back, plus horse racing, roll racing and a postponement for Tailem Bend Music Hall.

After two weeks of COVID-19 restrictions, sporting competitions in the Murraylands will resume this weekend.

Mypolonga will host Meningie, Imps will go to Mannum and Ramblers will visit Jervois as River Murray football and netball resume on Saturday.

Both the footy league and netty association have pushed back their fixtures for the remainder of the season, something they had been ready to do from the outset.

Grab a mask, get along and support your team.
