It’s a huge weekend for Kieran McGeeney and his Armagh men as they look to secure their Division One status.
Beat Roscommon, and Armagh’s good performances so far this year are rewarded, and they carry that momentum into the championship.
Lose, and it would be a massive blow to this teams development and would see the Orchard County tumble back down to the second division.
The Rossie’s came to the Athletic Grounds last year and left with all two points, so Armagh know what a challenge this game will be.
Ryan Kennedy, Aidan Forker, Paddy Burns, Conor O’Neill and Callum Cumiskey held five of the six defensive positions and none of them will start on Sunday.
Mark Shields and Jamie Clarke are two other absentees from last years starting team while Joe McElroy, who stepped away at the beginning of the year, was used as a second half sub.
Kieran McGeeney has opted for the same 15 that earned a share of the spoils against Donegal the last day out.
Ross Finn keeps his spot in the corner while the experience of James Morgan will be key in the full back line.
The Armagh Camogie team are also out this weekend in a Division Three semi-final against Carlow.
Mattie Lennon has made some changes to the starting line up that were defeated by one point two weeks ago by Wexford.
Louise Toner comes in at wing half back while her club mates Michelle McArdle and Laura Smyth also make the starting 15.
Colette McSorley was superb when introduced the last day out and has earned a start in the full forward line.
