Dublin v Meath, Croke Park, 7pm

Jordan Morris has been to the fore in Meath's championship game so far

Last weekend, Meath were down 0-10 to 0-04 against Kildare and Andy McEntee said they were so poor that he didn't know who to take off at half-time. It's been 10 years since Dublin were last beaten in Leinster and they have no equal in the province.

Meath have scored 12 goals in two games and they had a brilliant second half against Kildare, with young Jordan Morris playing very, very well. The fact that Kildare were ahead at half-time and that it was their bad mistakes that led to the Meath goals, I therefore can't see Dublin losing grip of this.

The Dubs to win it fairly handily.



Cork v Tipperary, Páirc Uí Chaoimh

Cork players upset the Kingdom with a late, late goal in the semi-final

It's fitting that Tipperary are bidding for provincial honours on the 100th anniversary of Bloody Sunday. 

This final is a novel pairing and I'm looking forward to it. 

I watched the Cork-Kerry semi-final again this week and I don't think Cork got the credit they deserve. Their defending, their physicality and their decision making was first-class. I think the way they want to play football is impressive. 

Have they room to improve? Of course, they have!

The challenge for Ronan McCarthy is to ensure that that ferocity and the willingness not to back down is at the same level it was against Kerry.

Tipperary were poor in the first half against Limerick. They then rattled off 1-06 in the second period, where Conor Sweeney hit that wonder score. They were brilliant in extra-time and Brian Fox was outstanding when he came in. 

I do think, however, that there is a togetherness and a belief about this Cork team and I can't see them taking the eye off the ball. 

It's a Cork win on Leeside. 


Cavan v Donegal, Athletic Grounds, 4pm 

The Anglo Celt Cup is the trophy on offer

Outside of Cork beating Kerry, Cavan have been the story of the championship. Six matches in six weeks - four championship matches in 21 days.

They were seven down against Monaghan and won the match; they were losing against Antrim and won the match and then were ten points down against Down and won the match, winning it convincingly.

You wonder then why can't they approach the first half of games the same way? That said, I don't think they get the credit for reaching a consecutive Ulster final.

I don't think Armagh did Donegal any favours last weekend. Donegal looked brilliant, but maybe a little bit better than they are.

They can hurt you in a lot of ways - from defence, midfield and the half-forward line. We haven't even mentioned Michael Murphy, Jamie Brennan, Oisin Gallen or Paddy McBrearty.

Donegal don't fear Cavan and they will put the boot down on them if they get on top. Watch the way they will go over the Cavan kick-outs

It will be the end of the road for Cavan.
