Stack Returns For Rossies As Dublin Unchanged For Super 8s Clash

Roscommon manager Anthony Cunningham has made one change for his side’s trip to Croke Park to face All Ireland champions Dublin in the second round of the Super 8s. 

Brian Stack takes the place of Hubert Darcy in the half-forward line following the Connacht champions’ 0-17 to 0-13 loss to Tyrone in Dr Hyde Park last weekend.

Stack was introduced in the closing stages of the first half and retains the position beside the influential Cathal Cregg and Niall Kilroy.

Meanwhile, Dublin have named a unchanged side for Saturday evening’s meeting in GAA HQ.

James McCarthy remains on the bench having recovered from an injury sustained in the Leinster final with Michael Dara MacAuley continuing at midfield following his goal-scoring contribution against Cork last weekend.

Cormac Costello continues to keep Dean Rock out of the starting XV despite the Ballymun Kickhams player kicking five points following his introduction in the 45th minute against the Rebels.

Throw-in at Croke Park on Saturday evening is 7pm. The game is preceded by the meeting of Cork and Tyrone and both matches will be shown live on Sky Sports.

Dublin: Stephen Cluxton; Michael Fitzsimons, David Byrne, Philly McMahon; Jack McCaffrey, Cian O’Sullivan, John Small; Brian Fenton, Michael Darragh-MacAuley; Niall Scull, Cormac Costello, Brian Howard; Ciarán Kilkenny, Paul Mannion, Con O’Callaghan.

Roscommon: Darren O’Malley; David Murray, Sean Mullooly, Conor Daly; Ronan Daly, Conor Hussey, Niall Daly; Tadgh O’Rourke, Shane Killoran; Brian Stack, Cathal Cregg, Niall Kilroy; Diarmuid Murtagh, Conor Cox, Enda Smith.
