Round 2 of the Allianz FLs produced plenty of talking points. Here is our football team of the week...

1. Mark Donnellan (Kildare)

The Lilywhite netminder was called into action twice to deny Matthew Taylor and Ruairi Deane in Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

2. Evan McGrath (Roscommon)

The Boyle clubman and his defensive team-mates restricted Monaghan to just six points from play in Dr Hyde Park.

3. Killian Clarke (Cavan)

The Breffni County came close to a morale boosting win over the Kingdom and Clarke was one of their standout performers in defence.

4. Keith Higgins (Mayo)

Higgins’ goal sent James Horan’s side on the road to an eye-catching nine-point defeat of Tyrone in Omagh.

5. Greg McCabe (Armagh)

McCabe roamed forward to register 1-1 in the Division 2 stalemate with Clare on home soil.

6. Jonny Cooper (Dublin)

The Na Fianna man proved to be the rock on which many a Galway attack perished.

7. Caolan Mooney (Down)

Down snatched victory from the jaws of defeat thanks to the attacking half-back’s injury time goal.

8. Ciaran McFaul (Derry)

The midfielder sent over five points in the Oak Leaf County’s seven-point success over London in Ballinascreen.

9. Tommy Durnin (Louth)

The Wee County got two points on the Division 3 table courtesy of their win over Laois and Durnin played a prominent part in Croke Park.

10. Fionn McDonagh (Mayo)

The Mayo newcomer helped himself to 1-3 in the dismantling of the Red Hands and his performance was one of many highlights for the travelling supporters.

11. Sean O’Shea (Kerry)

With their backs very much against the wall in Breffni Park, O’Shea delivered for the Kingdom with a return of 12 points.

12. Ciaran Thompson (Donegal)

Thompson top scored with 0-5 (three from play) as Declan Bonner’s men came from behind to edge out Meath in Ballybofey.

13. Conor Cox (Roscommon)

The former Kerry player marked his debut in the primrose and blue jersey in fine style with a five point return against the Farney County.

14. Cormac Costello (Dublin)

The gifted Whitehall Colmcille player pick-pocketed Galway to the tune of six points in Croke Park on Saturday evening.

15. David Tubridy (Clare)

The Banner County salvaged a draw in dramatic circumstances in the Athletic Grounds and Tubridy was their go-to-man with 1-7.
