Key Players To Watch
The Right corner-forward was Tyrone’s main man during the league campaign and expect that to continue on Sunday. His league tally of 0-33 in seven matches was the highest average points haul of the top scorers averaging 4.71 points per match only Mayo’s Ryan O’Donoghue who scored 2-30 an average of 4.50 across his eight matches scored more in total.
He hit 0–5 (0–3f) in their Ulster Quarter-Final before returning in their first series game against Galway hitting 0–7 (0–5f).
Many thought that Armagh’s Rian O’Neill was deserving of an All-Star inclusion for his performances in the 2022 season, but it did not come. Nevertheless, he has put that disappointment behind him and has been his counties star-performer in the league who’s score of 0-25 was only beaten by Damien McCurry of Tyrone and Ryan O’Donoghue of Mayo for an average of 4.16 points across his six matches.
Rian missed the first two rounds of the Ulster Championship but returned for the Semi-Final and scored a goal against Down on 47 minutes to kill the match. He scored 0–6 (0–3f, 0–1 ’45) in the Ulster Final and 0–4 (0–3f) against Westmeath, his impact at the weekend will be huge again.
