You think Kerry use this competition to play a number of new players instead of playing near full strength. Not going to find too many new players this, way and they need to find 2/3 defenders, 1 midfielder and at least another forward.

They had 5 players make their intercounty debut (3 starting) in this game.
Out of the 15 that started, I would say only 3 are definite starters - the 2 Cliffords and Tom O'Sullivan.
There was only 1 definite stater in the 8 subs - Sean O'Shea.
Thats 4 definite starters out of 23 players.
None of the other 19 are definite starters when fit especially under a new manager.

Limerick had I think 9 players making their intercounty debut.

David Buckley, Newcestown
Blake Murphy, St. Vincents

Fairly inexperienced looking Cork side named.
Joe Grimes is a Kerryman - a guard from Listowel who is stationed in Clonakilty.

2. Dara Conneely ​ (Ennistymon)
3. Eoghan Collins ​ (Ballyhaunis)
4. Ciaran Morrissey ​ (Kilmurry Ibrickane)
5. Cian O Dea ​ (Kilfenora) (Capt)
6. Alan Sweeney ​ (St Breckans)

11. Keelan Sexton ​ (Kilmurry Ibrickane)
12. Ciaran Downes ​ (Kilmihil)
13. Mark McInerney ​ (Eire-og,Inis)
14. Joe McGann ​ (St Breckans)
15. Aaron Griffin ​ (Lissycasey)
subs:
16. Tom O Brien (St Josephs Doora Barefield)
17. Ronan Lanigan (Eire-og, Inis)
18. Jack Sheedy (St Breckans)
19. ​ Maccon Byrne (St Breckans)
20. Dan Keating (Kilmihil)
21. Padraig Kelly (St Breckans)
22. Tom McDonald (St Josephs Doora Barefield)
23 Manus Doherty (Eire-og, Inis)
24. Andrew Shannon (Kilmurry Ibrickane)
25. Brian McNamara (Cooraclare)
26. Cathal O Connor (Coolmeen)

My feeling loking at those two lineups is that Clare at 7/4 might represent a bit of value.
Not big stakes but my feeling is Collins is a superior manager to Ricken.

Clare missing 7/8 key players for tomorrow Will be his toughest year to keep Clare in D2. Good to see Ciaran Morrissey starting. Mark McInerney is son of 92 legend Francis McInerney.

Expected routine win for Kerry in the McGrath cup final. 2-17 0-11 v Cork.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose
