We’ve just named our team to face Tyrone on Sunday (with thanks to Mayo Mad for the heads-up) and our starting fifteen shows just one change from the side that lined out against Kerry last weekend. Here it is:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Tyrone, 10/2/2013): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Kevin Keane (Westport), Ger Cafferkey (Ballina Stephenites), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis); Tom Cunniffe (Castlebar Mitchels), Colm Boyle (Davitts), Chris Barrett (Belmullet); Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Seamus O’Shea (Breaffy); Lee Keegan (Westport), Richie Feeney (Castlebar Mitchels), Cathal Freeman (Aghamore); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole), Michael Conroy (Davitts).
With Donal Vaughan presumably not yet back to full fitness, Tom Cunniffe gets another run in the half-backs and while he’s named at 5 I guess there’s a good chance that, like he did for much of the 70 minutes against Kerry, he’ll operate at centre-back with Colm Boyle in his more usual wing-back slot. In the forwards, Cathal Freeman gets another chance to impress at wing-forward while the experiments of deploying Richie Feeney and Lee Keegan in the half-forwards and Kevin McLoughlin at corner-forward are set to get another airing against the Red Hand.
