The Super 8s don’t allow much time for looking back at the match just played, with the next one approaching rapidly almost as soon as full-time has been called on the one that preceded it. In Mayo’s case this week that’s probably just as well, as otherwise supporters would have ended up doing some serious brooding over the manner of the team’s bad loss to Kerry in Killarney last Sunday. Instead, thoughts of that one have had to be boxed away and attention given instead to Sunday’s Phase 2 meeting with Meath, a county Mayo haven’t played a competitive match against in a decade.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we preview Mayo’s meeting on Sunday with the Royal County. Rob Murphy and I set the scene for Sunday’s match before Rob speaks with Mayo News columnist Billy Joe Padden, who talks tactics on what Mayo need to do and how they need to do it to re-ignite their Championship campaign at Croke Park on Sunday.
Next, Mayo News sports editor Mike Finnerty catches up with Conor McKeon of the Herald to chat about Sunday’s game from a Meath perspective and to hear about the qualities they’ll bring to the contest on Sunday. Finally Rob catches up with Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News who seeks to move the focus on from last Sunday’s defeat to Kerry by honing in on a number of key factors relating to Sunday’s all-or-nothing clash with Meath.
