Dress rehearsal for bigger games to come?

From once the fixtures were made, the meeting of Kerry and Dublin in Tralee was a pairing that stood out - a significant early test for Peter Keane's Kingdom project.

So far, Keane's troops, while not overly free-flowing, show a doggedness and a desire that saw them get the better of Tyrone. And then last Sunday against Cavan, caution was very much their approach in the opening half at Breffni. Once possession was lost, they would scurry back to defend, leaving few options up front.

With the wind on their backs for the second half, the applied more pressure and reaped the benefits as the hosts flagged. Seán O’Shea knocked over 0-12, with ten of those coming from placed balls. 

And so it's two wins from two and no goals conceded. And with a number of key players still missing through club commitments and injuries, Keane should be happy. However, he is keen to play things down

Speaking to RTÉ Sport, he said: "We have two games played now and we are getting [the team back] bit by bit

"We have been under fierce pressure with players and numbers and trying to get bodies back on the field.

"I won't complain [with two wins], but at the same time we won't be getting carried away with it."

Of course, for a manager to play things down is nothing new, but taking the Dubs scalp on Saturday evening would be a huge feather in the cap for Kerry's new management. With a stronger squad at their disposal for the remainder of the league, they would surely have one eye then on reaching the divisional final.

As for the Dubs, they registered their first win of the win when accounting for Galway at Croke Park.

Jim Gavin's side didn't take the lead until the 30th minute but remained in pole position from there on, dominating the second-half to bounce back from their loss in Monaghan.

Cormac Costello was the standout performer with 0-06 in a game where Gavin handed out three debuts, starting Liam Flatman and Sean Bugler, while the highly-regarded midfielder Darren Gavin came on in the second half.

Dublin's strength in depth is greater as of now though Kerry you would have to say possess a more potent inside forward line. 

We won't talk about the 'drive for five', but Tralee on Saturday evening in February could be the start of something really compelling between these old foes in the months ahead.   

What they said - Aidan O'Rourke 

"63% of games so far have been decided by a single score. That stat illuminates a reality that these seven rounds of league football are the most compelling and entertaining games of the inter-county year.

"By a process of natural selection, every team is where they deserve to be in the hierarchy at the start of each season. The virtue of that fact is that everyone around you are in similar positions and, crucially, beatable."

Westport's finest

Last year while in charge of Westport, James Horan worked with Fionn McDonagh and with telling effect the latter made his mark in the county jersey as Mayo turned in the most eye-catching display of round two.

McDonagh bagged 1-03 as the Green and Red made light work of the Tyrone challenge in Omagh. His goal was dispatched with no little authority and with Ciaran Treacy ably assisting him in the half-forward line, the early signs are good for Mayo, with Ciaran Whelan quick to praise the Connacht men on Allianz League Sunday.  


"It was the best we’ve seen from any team in the league so far. From a Mayo perspective they will be really happy that they were solid defensively, attacking from deep.

"Keith Higgins looked sharp, Lee Keegan looked sharp, Paddy Durcan looked sharp, they were coming from deep and the best thing was the cohesion in the forward line.

"They had second phase runners, winning the ball and getting guys coming through kicking scores."

Horan's men will fancy taking two more points at home to Cavan. If they do, they'll avoid any relegation scrap at the end of March. 

Another Westport player in the shape of Colm Moran will make his league debut against the Breffni.

Carlow still on the rise

Turlough O'Brien's men lead the way on points difference in Division 3 and host Longford at Netwatch Cullen Park. With Longford still short the Mullinalaghta contingent, you'd fancy the Barrowsiders to maintain their promotion push.

This third tier, like all the divisions is a competitive beast, and the most surprising result in the last round was Louth defeating Laois. The Wee County were seen by many as the most vulnerable in the section but another two points against Offaly in Tullamore would go some of the way to ensuring safety.
