Ciaran Whelan believes that the 'neutral' round of the Super 8s should be played in provincial venues rather than Croke Park, in the interest of fairness and atmosphere.

"Over the last two years, we've learned that the neutral games in Croke Park aren't working," he said on The Sunday Game.

"I would expect some managers probably want to get up there and get a game in Croke Park, to get into that environment if they're getting to a semi-final.

"But in terms of an atmosphere, I think it may be better to have them in provincial grounds.

"We've seen great examples of teams going on the road, we saw (Mayo) in Killarney last week. I would think there's a lesson in that."

Dublin's ability to nominate HQ as their home venue also means they play two group games at Jones' Road compared to two for everyone else.

For Whelan, a switch to neutral provincial venues is the way to end that paricular controversy.

"It would also get away from this thing that Dublin have two games in Croke Park, they would just have one and it would be a simple solution."
