Eamonn Fitzmaurice has selected an unusually strong bench for Kerry’s clash with Cork
When the Kerry manager decided to start Colm Cooper from the bench on Sunday, he raised the eyebrows of football fans across the country.
While the strength of Dublin’s panel has been discussed at length, Kerry seem to have come in under the radar in this regard.
Amongst the substitutes listed on the Kerry bench are Anthony Maher, Paul Geaney, Michael Geaney, Darren O’Sullivan, Tommy Walsh and the already mentioned Gooch.
@Rorysstories put the strength of their bench into context when he tweeted;
On Sunday, Kerry’s bench will include: 21 All Irelands 17 All Stars 4 Al final MOTM awards 2 Players of the year 1 Young Player of the Year
