There may only have been one match on last weekend but opinions were obviously sharply divided in advance as to how it would go and this is reflected in the significant shake-up that has taken place in the mini-league, with only one contestant in the top twenty staying where they were before Saturday evening’s throw-in.
That change goes all the way to the top where long-time leader Opt 2 Miss Teek has finally been overhauled by Mayo Mick. The latter has made steady progress in recent weeks but now has the tricky job of staying in pole position with just three matches left to predict. Mayo or Kerry? Dublin or Donegal? And then the final itself? I wouldn’t be surprised to see the lead switch again (and perhaps more than once) before we have a winner on All-Ireland night.
