Bernard Brogan Reportedly Set For Return To Dublin Squad

Dublin forward Bernard Brogan is reportedly set for a recall to the Dublin squad ahead of Saturday‘s All-Ireland final replay against Kerry.

According to The Irish Examiner, the 35-year-old will be included in Jim Gavin’s drive-for-five chasing squad at Croke Park this weekend, after missing out on the drawn game two weeks ago.

Brogan, who will be chasing his seventh All-Ireland winner’s medal on Sunday, has seen very little Championship action after suffering a devastating cruciate ligament injury at the beginning of the 2018 campaign.

His only appearances have come in Super 8 games against Roscommon and Tyrone over the past two seasons – with both games proving to be dead rubber affairs.

Gavin however may feel that the veteran forward can bring something different to the Dubs attack from the bench, after their replacements in the first tie against Kerry failed to find a score.

The same thing occurred in the semi-final victory over Mayo but Brogan’s experience and natural scoring ability could be the remedy to Dublin’s woes off the bench.

Dublin will be looking for a historic fifth All-Ireland title in a row when they clash with Kerry in Saturday’s All-Ireland final replay.

The two teams played out a 1-16 to 1-16 draw in a Croke Park classic a fortnight ago.
