Mayo GAA senior football manager Kevin McStay has made two changes from the team that started against Armagh last time out for Round 3 of the Allianz National Football League against All-Ireland champions Kerry this Saturday, February 18th at 7:30pm at the Hastings Insurance MacHale Park. Castlebar Mitchell's Donnacha McHugh comes into the starting fifteen in defence in place of Jack Coyne, who played for UL in the Sigerson final midweek. The other changes see Ballintubber's Diarmuid O'Connor return to midfield to partner Matthew Ruane with Westport's Fionn McDonagh moving into the half forward line in place of Jack Carney. Colm Reape continues in goal with David McBrien, Enda Hession, Rory Brickenden, Stephen Coen and Conor Loftus all retaining their places in defence. Castlebar Mitchel's youngster Bob Tuohy and Crossmolina Deel Rovers Jordan Flynn now partner McDonagh in the half forward line. After impressing against Armagh, Aidan O'Shea is named again at corner forward with Ardagh's James Carr and sharpshooter Ryan O'Donoghue completing an impressive full forward line. Stephen Coen will be captain on the day.
This game is live on TG4 Sport with live commentary from Michael D McAndrew and Colm Boyle also on Midwest Radio with thanks to O'Halloran and O'Brien Construction in the UK.
