Slaughtneil very impressive today although Screen will be disappointed with their performance, poor start and never really recovered. Primary possession from kick outs was one of Slaughtneil's strengths, strong running from midfield really cut open Screen's defence for the goals. Rodgers, Chrissy and Sammy were excellent in first half and the game was effectively over at halftime. 4-12 is a big return in a final, they may even be better than last year?

Very impressive by slaughtneil today. All the usual suspects played their part. McGrath stood out with a number of lung busting runs to get on the end of kick outs. McMullan's kick outs very good and very accurate especially with the short ones when there didn't seem to be much space.

Might be easier said than done but to beat slaughtneil a team will need to force them kick more 50/50s especially from their kick outs. gifting them possession from kick outs allows them to build quite easily and they rarely force anything in the attacking end. I wonder is there a club in ireland that have as many top class runners.

Thought the ref was very sore on screen. Some obvious fouls not blown and a potential black cards ignored.

I feel it's going to take a huge bad day at the office for slaughtneil to be beat in derry over the next 2-3 years.
