Kerry have named their team and subs for tomorrow evening’s game. Here’s the match day panel they’ve named.
Kerry (NFL Division One v Mayo, 12/2/2022): Shane Murphy (Dr Crokes); Dylan Casey (Austin Stacks), Jason Foley (Ballydonoghue), Tom O’Sullivan (Dingle); Graham O’Sullivan (Piarsaigh na Dromoda), Tadhg Morley (Templenoe), Brian Ó Beaglaíoch (An Ghaeltacht); Diarmuid O’Connor (Na Gaeil), Jack Barry (Na Gaeil); Dara Moynihan (Spa Killarney), Jack Savage (Kerins O Rahillys), Adrian Spillane (Templenoe); Paudie Clifford (Fossa), David Clifford (Fossa, captain), Paul Geaney (Dingle). Subs: Shane Ryan (Rathmore), Tony Brosnan (Dr Crokes), Gavin Crowley (Templenoe), Killian Spillane (Templenoe), Stephen O’Brien (Kenmare Shamrocks), Micheál Burns (Dr Crokes), Greg Horan (Austin Stacks), Darragh Roche (Glenflesk), Pa Warren (Gneeveguilla), Joe O’Connor (Austin Stacks), Cian Gammell (Killarney Legion).
The starting fifteen features four changes – one highly significant – from the team that started against Monaghan last time out. Into the team come goalkeeper Shane Murphy, Graham O’Sullivan at wing-back, Jack Savage at centre-forward and Paul Geaney at corner-forward, while out go ‘keeper Shane Ryan, as well as Gavin Crowley, Seán O’Shea and Tom Brosnan. While Ryan, Crowley and Brosnan are all included among the subs, O’Shea isn’t in the match day 26.

Mayo at odds 9/4 , with Sean o Shea out, I think that is very generous. I actually fancy Mayo and the wetter the better !! Can’t wait
I don’t care who’s in or out at this stage, I fancy us getting the win going on our current form and attitude, and noting what Kerrys report is so far too.
9/4, I like that. I have a feeling things could go our way in Twickenham too, so I think I’ll stick a few on that double.
Looking forward to hitting the road south tomorrow an catching up with some old friends, and esp the game – a one point win and no injuries will do me.
Safe travelling all, up Mayo!
Ps, thanks once again Willie Joe, top class as always!
Attitute win alot of Matches. Compliance loses alot of matches. Going back to all ireland final, our head lost us that match. Sean O’Shea a fabulous footballer, but we tried alot of new guy this year, which surprised me how well they have intrigated into team and coped with county football. We have a serious job to do tomorrow night, and I would be happy with a good performance and win a bonus
Anyone else think that’s a rather underwhelming lineup from Kerry? Granted Sean oshea is a big loss for them tonight but if you strip away the top 4 or 5 most talented players in that Kerry squad there’s a lot of lads that have been rather underwhelming and they aren’t kids any more, many of them are in their mid 20s.
I would nearly argue that Mayo have more depth than Kerry and more options to call on from the bench later this year, provided Cillian and Jason get fit and available.
I think Kerry have the edge on us in top line talent (there’s nobody as good as Clifford in the Mayo squad for example) but they definitely have weaknesses like ourselves.
The Kerry team of the 2000s was unbelievable really, it was very hard to pick out any weak links there by contrast to this team.
Also I think Jack o connor is playing a dangerous game by not building squad depth and continuously playing mainly his best 18 or 19 players in the league. It only takes one injury to Clifford or Sean o Shea and he’s suddenly turning to some quite inexperienced players.
Sean o Shea missing is a loss for Kerry but the notion that they have an underwhelming team is not one Id go along with. O Connor has been working on the defence and they have some excellent forwards. The weather conditions may make it a lottery. In their game v dublin in similar conditions Kerry had wind in first half and game was over at half time. Kerry only got a point in the second half but they comfortably kept dublin at arms length
