This weekend’s round 11 of River Murray football matches has a lot to live up to if it is to match the excitement of last weekend’s thrilling round.

This weekend’s round has the makings of another exciting day of football as the competition tightens.

On Saturday, no game was decided by more than 14 points with the other two matches decided by one single kick as the gap between the top sides and bottom teams continues to prove to be smaller than in previous seasons.

This weekend’s round has the makings of another great day of football as the competition tightens.

The two sides out of the top five on the league premiership table in Jervois and Imperials will clash with both eager to stake their claim for a finals spot.

Meanwhile, the fourth versus fifth match at Tailem Bend between the Roosters and the Eagles looms as a potential thriller.

Even in the third game, top-placed Meningie are no certainly against a Mypolonga side who sit in third on the table and have defied the odds so far in 2017.

Mannum, who are on an eight-game winning streak, have the bye.
