Dublin Half Forward Line

(Oldest Posts First)

Connolly's absence is another man's opportunity. The most exciting thing about this squad is the fact that someone always steps up. O'Carroll gone etc was doom and gloom. Now Connolly is on summer holidays, who will seize the chance?

Please don't say Scully .Not at this level. For me in big game all fit, Flynn Kilkenny Mannion Also could see Jack there if Small is back

Looking like a big year for Mannion judging by his performances, hes looking sharper. McHugh looking more at home at this level and O'Callaghan still looking to find his feet but it seems he will be given the chance to show his worth.

Mannion performances?
he done nothing against Carlow
I don't get why people keep selecting him wing forward on here?
He never plays wing forward
always full forward line

against a very defensive system you could still see Mannion has form. Mannion is mentioned because any selection change in the forwards can mean positional changes, i.e. he was selected as half forward for the carlow game.

He didn't play half forward
McCarthy was named midfield
scully named wing back
Kilkenny named half forward
none of them lined out there though.
mannion don't fit a wing forward role

Didn't play half forward today again as scully,Andrews and Kilkenny lined out there and o Callaghan switched with Andrews a lot. Mannion was in full forward line
