The GAA National Football Leagues are well and truly underway and after two action packed weekends we now take a look at where teams stand with our top 10.
1. Kerry – The Kingdom have made a superb start to the 2019 league campaign with two superb wins over Tyrone and Cavan. Sean O’Shea has been superb for Kerry and with him and Paul Geaney in attack they will be hard to beat
2. Dublin – Loss to Monaghan was dissapointing but made up for that with a good 11 point win over Galway. A massive game in Kerry awaits them in their next league game.
3. Mayo – James Horan’s Mayo have got off to an impressive start with 2 league wins from 2 games. Mayo have found new talent with Fionn McDonagh, Brian Reape and Conor Diskin.
4. Monaghan – Malachy O’Rourkes men started the league off with a superb win over Dublin on the opening day of the league. Conor McManus and Co will like to make it to a league final.
5 Donegal – Donegal have hit the ground running in Division 2 and look almost certain to return to the top flight next year if they continue their form. They are without the Gaoith Dobhair players who are on club duties. Michael Murphy and Paddy McBrearty also haven’t featured yet.
6 Tyrone – Not the best of starts to the league for Tyrone with two losses to Kerry and Mayo. The huge defeat to Mayo was very disappointing. They looks odds on for relegation if things don’t change. Still a top 6 team.
7 Galway – Galway won their opening game narrowly against Cavan, before going to lose heavily to Dublin. Kevin Walsh’s men should manage to stay in the dicidivi they have good quality players.
8 Kildare – Drew with Kildare on opening day before travelling to Cork to defeat them in latest game .Cian O’Neill has assembled a superb back room team will surely get promoted.
9 Roscommon – Opening day loss to Mayo under the lights in Castlebar. Made up for it with a good win over Monaghan last weekend.
10 Cavan – Odds on to drop to Division 2 now after two defeats from two .Losing to Galway and Kerry. Bigger games also lie ahead.
