Former Footballer of the Year Lee Keegan has hit out at the tackle that saw his Mayo team-mate Evan Regan suffer facial injuries that will likely require surgery.

The incident occurred during Mayo's NFL Division 1 defeat to Kerry in Castlebar on Saturday night.

Regan is likely to miss the rest of the league campaign with the injury and Westport man Keegan described the tackle as "a very bad challenge" when discussing some of the fringe players who have impressed him in Mayo's league campaign to date.

"Evan Regan got a bad injury at the weekend so that could curtail his league campaign again. I thought he was doing ok. I thought he had a good game against Monaghan. Got a bad tackle at the weekend, and he got a bad outcome there; a broken jaw. He's going to have to try and look after that for a couple of months anyway.

"We're still looking at a couple of guys there, a lot of young guys at the moment so I think Stephen's going to change it up hopefully again and get a look at these guys and see where they are."

A Mayo spokesperson last night described Regan's injury as a "facial bone fracture and concussion injury" while Keegan revealed he would likely require surgery.

"A very bad challenge to be honest. I was literally in line with it. It was bad now I have to say. I was chatting to him yesterday and he was in a bad way still. I know he got a bit of bad news, he has to get surgery now I think.

Do we know what happened in this incident that has left Regan requiring surgery for a broken jaw? Although I didn't see the game, I understand that it was broadcast on Eir Sport, was there an obvious challenge that brought about the end of Regan's League campaign.

There was an incident were a Mayo lad had been knocked to the ground. As he was getting to his knees a Kerry lad hit him with the shoulder. A cheap shot. I don’t know if that’s the one though

No, that was the Kerry no 19 on Cillian O'Connor.

Regan was caught by a swinging arm while running towards goal.

TG4's competition question at the break there...

Subaru is the official car partner for which county?
A. Kildare
B. Dublin
C. Offaly
 ;D ::)

I reckon it's shit or bust for Coen to nail down the number 6 position. Sean O'Shea had a good game last week by all accounts and may cause trouble again this time. If Boyle doesn't Start will the replacement be as good? Getting worried now thinking about it.

Not questioning his effort or commitment, but just feel that Coen does not has what it takes to be an intercounty footballer for a top team.
Last year, it seemed that Rochford had pre-determined that he would come on as a sub no matter what the situation.

Didnt he hold Connolly scoreless after Lee Keegan got black carded in 2016?


I think he's a CHB or nothing (well, maybe a FB if you're stuck) and I think he'll nail down that position this year. Should be instructed never tí shoot though!!

He struggled badly tonight at CHB marking Sean O'Shea. Durcan moved onto him midway through the first half and the difference was instant. O'Shea was quiet after that.

Have DCU released their Sigerson panel for this year?

Where's Fergal Boland this year? He looked very good in the league last year albeit a bit light.

Was hurling with Tooreen until last weekend so will probably see him against Kerry. Apparently he was our standout player in a challenge game vs Corofin on Saturday.

It is important do pick up as many points as possible at home.  Doing well at home should put any county toward the middle of the table.  Donegal, Kerry, Mayo, and Tyrone have three home games, while the others have four.  Mayo seem to have the toughest home schedule with Kerry, Dublin and Tyrone all going west of the Shannon this year.  If Kerry can avoid their usual poor league start against Donegal in Killarney, home points are expected from Galway and Kildare as well. 

Tyrone have three interesting home games as well.  For those tipping Donegal for relegation, note both Galway and Kildare will be visitors to the north west.

Is it better to have the stronger teams at home, especially in the early rounds?

Here is the list of teams home games...

Donegal 3 (Galway, Kildare, Mayo)
Dublin 4 (Kildare, Donegal, Kerry, Monaghan)

Galway 4 (Tyrone, Mayo, Monaghan, Dublin)
Kerry 3 (Donegal, Galway, Kildare)

Kildare 4 (Monaghan, Tyrone, Mayo, Galway)
Mayo 3 (Kerry, Dublin, Tyrone)

Monaghan 4 (Mayo, Kerry, Tyrone, Donegal)
Tyrone 3 (Dublin, Donegal, Kerry)

Mayo's home from in the league over the last few years has been terrible so we're the exception to the rule.

The galway and Kildare example from last year is wrong too. Galway hadn't qualified for the final before the final round of fixtures.

There's a good chance the Connacht Council will end up losing money this way. Supporters won't have much interest going to a dead rubber game this week or going to an FBD game in the middle of the NFL. It'll be a nuisance for players and management too having their one free weekend in February taken up.

What happens in cases like this, do they give you back your money or a  voucher for the rescheduled match?

No money back in Castlebar, ticket for the refixture.

And refixture will likely be played on a Wedneday night where many won't be able to attend..

I was told the ticket can be used for any of the FBD games so I'll be using for the roscommon game.

Surely a decision should have been made before everyone paid in?! We knew a few days ago that temperatures would only be 2 or 3 degrees.

Looks like Donie Vaughan's transfer to Mitchels is happening. Nice coup for castlebar but seems strange when you consider the lads who travel from Dublin to play club football!

Well done Carnacon. Great way for Cora to sign off before Oz.

I see Westport and Belmullet are through to the u21 final. Westport's senior players did much of their scoring. Some of them are future county seniors no doubt.
