National - Mayo's starting team

Replying To tiobraid:  "Its funny how peoples views differ. You're only worried about what I would perceive the only line ye have a chance of breaking even in (until the subs come on!)
Everyone assumes Andrews will start, for some reason I can see him being introduced off the bench."
I wouldn't say i'm worried about the full back line - but I think it is the only line that Mayo should dedicate man markers to direct opponents. Andrews may not start but for me he is most under rated player in Ireland at present. Keith Higgins has a score to settle with him after getting a run around from him in 2015 semi final

I think that the team mostly picked except for durcan. He could be on the bench, he could go wing forward instead of diarmuid, or he could go in instead of Vaughan. I think Vaughan would be a good option on the bench for when Seamus needs to be taken off. He could pick up, Fenton, McCarthy or mdma at that stage

I'm a big fan of Andrews but no one knows who Gavin will pick. THe match ups all over the field will be very interesting

E Regan starting? Your having a laugh.

I'm hoping Mayo match up like this.

Barrett v rock, Higgins v mannion, Harrison v Andrews, Keegan v o Callaghan, Boyle v Kilkenny, Vaughan v Flynn/Scully, SOS v Fenton, Parsons v McCarthy.
AOS with a free role.
Playing Doherty, Moran and KOC inside and leaving mcloughlin on the 40 with probably Durkan Following McCaffrey around the place.
I'd have DOC as a sub so we have 2 forwards to come on for the finish. Couldn't see how Regan would get a run at all
