Good enough team. From numbers 5 to 12 it is very strong. Only 4 of that team started against Kerry in last years semi final. It shows that management will be giving everyone a chance again this year. Hopefully the newcomers like Kirby and Coen will show their best ability. Great to see conroy and Barry Moran back in the fold.
I’m more than surprised with Davitts allowing their players to play with Mayo and themselves playing in an All-Ireland semi-final in a fortnight. As for Coen, he is a great youngster. Nice to see new players been tried in different positions anyway.
James has a plan. Already he has started to lay the foundation. Vaughan at centre back, Moran and O Shea at mid, Harte in the pivot and McLoughlin as his cover . They will be the base. The rest are up for grabs. So far, so good.
