Streetwise Galway "well up for battle"

Damien Comer says Galway will be ready for anything Kerry throw at them on Sunday.

The Connacht and Munster senior football champions will collide at Croke Park in a massive Super 8s encounter and Tribe captain Comer knows a stern test awaits Kevin Walsh's side:

"They bring huge physicality. We've seen against Cork and Clare, they've been hitting hard up front. We know how good they can be but we've got to concentrate on our own performance and bring what we can to the game," he tells RTE.

"If we can play like we did in the second half against Roscommon, if we can play with that bit of steel and edge, play to our potential... if we sit off them and let them play football they can destroy any team. Our lads are streetwise at this stage. They'll be well up for the battle.

"They've got very good footballers young and old. It's up to us to try and limit that and try to disrupt their momentum.

"We've had a good year in the league and championship so far so we obviously want to bring that on further and try and progress it into the Super 8s. I think the Super 8s will help this Galway team."
