It’s fair to say that there is some stiff competition for places, particularly in the half-forward line which is looking particularly crowded with the inclusion of regular full-forward Michael Murphy. And as always, the selection is sure to generate plenty of discussion over the next couple weeks. Best of luck to the six lads on the night – if it was up to us, they’d all be getting gongs.
