Tyrone have finally named their starting fifteen for this afternoon’s game. It’s a strong enough team too, by the looks of it, with the bulk of those who featured against Donegal once more on duty today.
Here’s the team they’ve named:
Tyrone (NFL Division One v Mayo, 25/10/2020): Niall Morgan; Liam Rafferty, Ronan McNamee, Darragh Canavan; Tiernan McCann, Kieran McGeary, Michael McKernan; Brian Kennedy, Frank Burns; Mattie Donnelly, Conor McKenna, Darren McCurry; Peter Harte, Conall McCann, Conor Meyler.
The team they’ve picked shows three changes from their starting line-up against Donegal last Sunday. Into the first fifteen come Darragh Canavan at corner-back, Brian Kennedy at midfield and Peter Harte at corner-forward. Out go Rory Brennan, Pádraig Hampsey and Niall Sludden.
They’ve said nothing, by the way, about that reported positive Covid case in their squad. That’s bad form on their part, not least in light of the alarming infection rate up that side of the island right now. It’s another reason, I guess – not that we need one – to go out and get the required result against them this afternoon.
