IMPERIALS v MANNUM: Imperials hosts Mannum in the headline act for round seven of River Murray football.

The fourth-placed Roos and the third-placed Blues are two of the three sides on three wins so they will desperately want this one to help their final four chances.

In round two, Mannum beat Imperials by 19 points. It was a six goal to one first quarter that set up Mannum's win.

Mannum's Liam Newton, Adam Smyth, Isaac Hampel, Michael O'Malley and Blake Tabe have been good all year but the Roos missed Jake Keller, Daniel Laubsch and Isaac Hampel last week.

Imperials have Dylan Hollitt firing, James Clarke, Louis DeMichele and Tyson Wait playing well in defence and Cooper Anderson and Sam Butterworth have been good finds.

Big Johnny Boras leads the league in goals kicked with 26 and Sam DeMichele has been chipping in with 11.

Both sides are coming into this game off losses - the Blues an 18-point loss to Jervois and Mannum an eight-point loss to Mypo.

Either side can win this match, however Mannum have been the surprise packet of the year and have shown no reason why they can't beat Imperials for a second time this season.

The Standard's tip: Mannum

RAMBLERS v JERVOIS: The sixth-placed Roosters host the ladder-leading Bluds for the second meeting between the clubs. In round two, it was Jervois who won by a comfortable margin.

Both sides are coming off good wins; Jervois over Imperials and Ramblers with a big win over Tailem Bend.

Rambler coach Alex Button put defender Sam Pfeiffer forward on Saturday and he proved his worth as a swing man with strong hands and five majors in a best-on-ground performance.

Jervois have their own trump card up forward in Josh Scott.

Scott got on top of the Roosters in round two with 10 majors and he is second on the goal kicking table with 22.

The Roosters have Matt Hartman playing well in the ruck, Ben Dougall playing well in defence and the middle and Jacob Trevorrow is in good touch.

The Bluds miss Michael Pope who is out with a bicep injury but Clint Richardson and Taite Silverlock have come into the side and will build into the season.

The Standard's tip: Jervois

MYPOLONGA v TAILEM BEND: The Tigers host the struggling Eagles in the last round seven match.

Mypolonga are coming off a good win over Mannum while Tailem got a touch up by Ramblers.

The Eagles have fallen off the pace a bit with one win and five losses while Mypolonga are second, only percentage from top spot, with four wins.

In round two, Mypo beat Tailem by 24 points and while it was the Tigers who were victorious, the Eagles looked up for the contest for much of the match so they will take confidence from that.

Tailem Bend's Ben Hansen has been good with his move to defence and Dale Finnie and Will McMurray have done well in the middle.

However, the class of Mypo's Rory Taggert, Ben Gogel and James Moss has proven too much for the Eagles many times.

Ben Davis played well last time against Tailem Bend and Kobe Wilson, Lachlan Butler and Simon Lehmann are also firing.

Mypo are heavy favourites to win while Tailem will be hoping for a more competitive effort than last week.

The Standard's tip: Mypolonga
