McGeeney names team to take on Tyrone

Armagh host Tyrone this weekend in round two of the National Football League.

The Red Hand County got their 2021 season off to a poor start, losing out to Donegal in round one last weekend.

Armagh on the other hand gained the first two points of the year with a pleasing performance against Monaghan.

Kieran McGeeney has unsurprisingly named an unchanged line out, although the team has several positional switches.

Aidan Forker remains at full back although his position could be anywhere on the field.

He’s likely to be on man marking duties this weekend and be responsible for curtailing Conor McKenna’s influence on proceedings.

Oisin O’Neill spent a lot of time at full forward against Monaghan and will wear the number 14 jersey.

The attack is Armagh’s most exciting unit and Geezer will once again have plenty of options on the line if he needs them.

Conor Turbitt impressed in round one with two second half points while Ross McQuillan, Jason Duffy and Tiernan Kelly also got game time.

The hurlers will take on Sligo this weekend in a repeat of the 2019 Nicky Rackard Cup Final, although Armagh will hope to reverse that result.

Padraig O’Connor has also gone with an unchanged starting 15 following his sides flying start to the season last weekend.

Longford were no match for the Orchard County and the home side ran out comfortable winners in the end.

Fionntain Donnelly caught the eye in round one and finished as top scorer on the day with 0-11 to his name.

Danny Magee remains a crucial part of the forward line and his eye for goal will be cause for concern for Sligo.

Paddy McBride and Peter McKearney form a hardworking midfield partnership and the two boys can chip in with a score as well.

Aaron Fox captained the side last week and his leadership was telling, bursting forward to hit two points on the day and will hope to have a similar performance on Saturday.
