There’s no NFL action this weekend but the lads will still get a run-out, with Paidi O Se’s Clare coming to Ballinrobe on Saturday evening (February 17th) to inaugurate the club’s new floodlights at Flanagan Park in the town. Throw-in is at 6.30pm. Kevin McStay mentions the upcoming challenge game in his regular column in this week’s Mayo News. He also supplies photographic evidence (reproduced here) to show that the lights actually work!
In terms of who Johnno selects to play on Saturday night, I think we can expect to see some Rafa Benitez-type rotation. What odds on a much-changed forward line to give some of the guys on the margins a run?
