Rian O’Neill has been named to start Armagh’s crucial final league game tomorrow against Tyrone in Omagh.
The rumour mill was in full swing all week, but it was reported that O’Neill is set to miss out through injury.
Armagh’s top scorer this season, O’Neill looks set to face six-eight weeks on the sideline due to a quad injury.
But he’s been named to line out from the start tomorrow as Kieran McGeeney picks the same 15 from last week’s defeat to Galway.
Ethan Rafferty, last weekend’s goal scorer, starts his 17th successive game guarding the goals for Armagh.
The full back line is once again made up of Barry McCambridge, Aaron McKay and Aidan Forker.
McCambridge has been in great man-marking form this season. He has held both David Clifford and Shane Walsh scoreless from play.
Ciaran Mackin was Armagh’s Man of the Match in the Galway game and chipped in with 0-1 from half back.
Greg McCabe will once again marshal the centre of the Armagh defence, with Jarly Og Burns on the other flank.
Stefan Campbell and Tiernan Kelly will start as Armagh’s centerfield pairing, just as they did against the Tribesmen.
Callum Cumiskey, replaced early on in round six after kicking a score, starts the game at wing half forward.
Ballymacnab playmaker Rory Grugan is in the centre with Joe McElroy lining out in the number 12 shirt.
Joint-captain O’Neill score 0-1 last weekend but was replaced by Aidan Nugent near the end of the game.
Andrew Murnin has been one of Armagh’s stars so far in the season and lines out in his usual spot of full forward.
Cullyhanna sharpshooter Jason Duffy, who hit the net against Tyrone in last year’s league, completes the inside line.
Whether O’Neill starts or not remains to be seen, but expect some changes before throw in time tomorrow.
