For this i have switched Richie Power into full forward, himself and DJ will switch between them as we want to try and move Fanning around and use a player with good movement and first touch against him as he is a physical stopper and would see off Seamus Prendergast easily enough.
Griffin will look to play between the the full and half forward line and drift out as another puckout option as he would have a good height advantage against both corner backs and will also look to play off the breaks from Rushe and the shorter balls from Galvin, Maher and Kerins.
Kerins agains will look to move out the field and supplement midfield while Galvin will look to pick up balls from the half backline and tidy things up which should allow us plenty of opportunities with overlaps and with the half backline to give us opportunities to hit the three lads inside 30 yards from goal who will be moving and hitting space.
Lohan will take Gillane which will be a tough battle but Frank has the height and speed to make Gillane earn any scores he gets while Mick Kavanagh v Power should be a great tussle. Liam Ryan will have the legs for Cloonan and is just the type of niggly fucker who will drive him to distraction.
I’d fancy Liam Rushe to get far more joy out of Declan Hanno than Seamus will out of Seanie. Byrnes will take Lehane in what could be a crowded enough middle third which will suit me as Fenlon and Dunne are stick men while Lyng and Kerins are workers who will cover ground and put it tackles. Last two battles come down to Dan Mc v Ronan Maher which should be a good tussle while you would fancy Tony or Brendan Maher to get the better of Seamus I would expect that Seamus will graft away and at least keep them honest and not let the ball out too quickly.
Should be a fascinating game. I will back my boys to get it done with Seanie McMahon giving a tour de force at six
