This is according to the Western, which has a few freshly-harvested quotes from The Candidate on how things are shaping up. The O'Malley and Clarke stories we know but Johnno had a few interesting things to say about Messrs Mortimor, Brady and McDonald. He says that Trevor is ahead of the other two in terms of match fitness and so is closer to a starting berth. I'd go further - though not as far as the Mayo News' Sean Rice apparently went in 1967 - and would confidently predict that Trev will indeed start against Galway. The Morts are border men who like nothing better than kicking Galwegian hide and so the more of them we have playing on Sunday, the better. What's Kenneth up to this weather, by the way?
DB might start, though I have a sneaking feeling that Nallen might get the nod to line out alongside Heaney in midfield. Fourgoal McGee suggests that DB could be selected at full-back and you'd have to agree that there's a fair bit of logic to this. Ahh, just name the shaggin' team, lads, and be done with it!
If it is named tonight, the first we'll hear of it is likely to be on RTE Radio 1 just past the witching hour. The sports bulletin that they run just after the midnight news usually contains a GAA roundup from Briiiaaaann Cartheeeeeeeeeeeeeee and he's usually first on the draw with news like this.
