(Oldest Posts First)

Heres last weeks starting 15.

1. Mark Donnellan (Maynooth)
2. Ciaran Fitzpatrick (Kilcock)
3. Hugh McGrillen (Celbridge)
4. Ollie Lyons (Celbridge)
5. Emmet Bolton (Eadestown)
6. Fergal Conway (Celbridge)
7. Keith Cribbin (Johnstownbridge)
8. Tommy Moolick (Leixlip)
9. Gary White (Sarsfields)
10. Cathal McNally (Johnstownbridge)
11. Niall Kelly (Athy)
12. Padraig O'Neill (St Laurence's)
13. Eamonn Callaghan (Naas)
14. Padraig Fogarty (St Laurence's)
15. Eoghan O'Flaherty (Carbury)

I wasn't at the match so am only going off the kfm coverage.

Smith, Tomas o connor &Eoghan O Flatherty all deserve starting places for the monaghan game in my opinion!
Hurley when on form could make a big impact in midfield.

First 10 minutes of second half against Down McGrillen was roasted by Coulter that's why he has been dropped. Niall Kelly was too easily knocked off the ball against Clare and Monaghan are a lot stronger than Clare. TOC and Podge should play in my mind because quick direct ball is our best way of winning

My team v Monaghan:

Donnellan
O'Grady
Fitzpatrick
Lyons
Bolton
Conway
Cribben
Moolick
Hurley
Callaghan
O'Flaherty
O'Neill
Fogarty
O'Connor
Smith

Any update on the fitness of Mulhall or Peter Kelly?

Thanks murof! Two Eoin O'Flaherty's are needed though!

Mullhall seems to be out of favour for whatever reason. He did well in the league, and was unfortunate with injury at the start of the championship. He hasn't been introduced off the bench which is odd

Mulhall played very well for Athy against Naas on sunday and scored 1-5 I think. Definitely think he is one of the best forwards in Kildare at the moment and proved it during the league. Fully expect to see him back for the next game whether he starts or not.

Don't think Niall Kelly should start against Monaghan , he'll be muscled out of it , better he comes on with 20 minutes left to inject some life and energy
