Nope.
On the radio they reckoned McGleenan was up-ended by someone in the middle of it.

Listening to Northern sound now to see if I can hear about it.

Was not expecting Leitrim to beat Louth and Kildare look like they might be out to

Unless mayo draw either Tyrone  or Monahan it looks very likely that these 3 will be definite for the super 8s.roscommon may be the only beaten finalist that may give a good account of themselves and that because of their good forwards.
Leitrim will be the team of choice in round 3 hope they get clare or offal who  wouldn't be too hard on them.i hope!!


Armagh
Mayo
Kildare
Cavan
Leitrim
Monaghan
Tyrone
Clare or  offaly

Tyrone cannot play Monahan in rd 3

The only fixture not allowed is Tyrone v Monaghan.

Are the losing provincial finalists in the draw?

This weeks draw is Round 3.

Losing provincial finalists join in Round 4.

Round 3 will be these 8 teams playing against each other

Armagh
Mayo
Kildare
Cavan
Leitrim
Monaghan
Tyrone
Clare/Offaly

Tyrone cannot play Monaghan in rd 3 because they already played each other at the provincial stage.

Monaghan (3)
Tyrone (4)
Mayo (6)
Kildare (8)
Cavan (10)
Armagh (17)
Leitrim (29)
Clare (11)/Offaly (22)

The four teams who win will be drawn against the four provincial final losers - so far Roscommon (9) and Cork (14) are there and 2 from Dublin (2)/Laois (25)  and Donegal (7)/Fermanagh(18)

The numbers after the teams are where each team finished after the regular league series of games.

If we assume the team that finished highest in the league will win their games, the 4 sides to go into Round 4 will be

Monaghan (3)
Tyrone (4)
Mayo (6)
Kildare (8)

and the four provincial losers going into Round 4 will be

Roscommon (9)
Cork (14)
Fermanagh(18)
Laois (25)


The 2 Super 8 groups would be

Galway (1)
Kerry (5)

Dublin (2)
Donegal (7)

and 2 each from the following 4 into both groups

Monaghan (3)
Tyrone (4)
Mayo (6)
Kildare (8)

This assumes no upset between now and the Super 8 stage.

Round 3 draw can scupper any seedings.  Tyrone/Mayo or Mayo/Monaghan pairings could see a big team gone early enough.  Cavan under the radar a bit?

On today's showing the only teams cavan wwould beat are leitrim or maybe clare/offaly. Would be a great draw for anyone else, especially with mcvitty suspended

Mcgleenan wasn't anywhere near it. Load of handbags and I didn't see a punch thrown but of course cormac did. Mind you he had really screwed Down in the match. A terrible refereeing performance, I used to think he was decent once upon a time but he needs to hang up his whistle now.

In order of preference, I'd have

Leitrim
Armagh
Clare/offaly
Kildare
Cavan
Tyrone
Monaghan

Monaghan are the team I'd really like to avoid

I presume the Div 3,4 teams are entitled to home advantage for this round 3 draw also?
