Andrew Murnin

Laid off the final pass for Duffy’s winning score but Murnin didn’t get much joy at full forward.

A frustrating day for Burns as Down flooded the defence but he worked hard throughout the 70 minutes.

Jason Duffy

The man of the moment, Duffy swung over the game winning score when the opportunity fell his way.

Oisin O’Neill

Registered his first championship point since the opening round of the 2022 USFC against Donegal and it was an important one.

Looked busy when he was added in, and the Madden man added some pace when the legs were tied.
