Who do you think should start in the Armagh half back line against Antrim in the preliminary round of the Ulster Championship?
Armagh host Antrim in the BOX-IT Athletic Grounds this Saturday afternoon to get their campaign underway.
Niall Rowland picked up a knock in a recent club game, so is likely to be out of contention. Conor O’Neill and Connaire Mackin also haven’t saw much game time of late.
McCabe missed out on the first few rounds of Armagh’s Division One campaign, but was a welcome addition to the Orchard defence was he returned.
The Shane O’Neill’s man is a solid defender who controls the centre of the Armagh rear-guard and always offers cover at the back.
Jarly Og Burns
Jarly Og Burns moved into the middle of the field for a few league games, but reverted back to wing half back for the last couple of rounds.
He starred against Donegal, hitting a late point to seal the victory, and offers great pace bursting out of the defence.
The Harps man is back in the Armagh squad this season and made three appearances throughout the National League.
He gave a brilliant display when introduced against Kerry picking up Paudie Clifford and started against both Donegal and Galway as well.
The Killeavy made was replaced against Kerry after picking up an injury and has been sidelined ever since.
O’Neill can do it all in defence. He can man-mark, break forward to join the attack and knows where the goalposts are as well.
Connaire Mackin played just once throughout the National League. He started the second-round clash against Mayo.
Injury has kept him out of action since then, but the Shane O’Neill’s man could be an option against Antrim this weekend.
