Tadhg Kennelly says Dublin’s selfless approach reminds him of his AFL club Sydney Swans.

Having seen Jim Gavin’s side complete the historic five-in-a-row by beating Kerry in a replayed final last month, the former Kingdom star has great admiration for the Sam Maguire Cup holders:

“Jim has got to take enormous credit because they are selfless, it’s all about the team. They put their egos to the side,” the Swans coach told The Irish Daily Star.

“They do remind me an awful lot of our own football club out here – the Swans. They are very respectful. It’s all about the team, it’s not about you. Put your ego at the door when you walk in.

“There’s a policy here in Sydney: we call it the ‘no dickhead’ policy, basically, and that’s Dublin. Then you put the talent on top of that … enormous credit.”
