Mayo Senior Football Team v Roscommon
- Jul 28,2017
Mayo & Roscommon face each other in championship action for the first time outside of Connacht when they go head to head on Sunday in Croke Park.
Following an extra time when over Cork last Saturday the team is the same as the one that was named in last weekend's win.
Interestingly All-Star corner back Keith Higgins made his championship debut against Roscommon in Hyde Park back in 2005. This weekend will be Keith's 137th Mayo appearance(80 league, 57 championship). The team's most recent championship clash was a Connacht semi-final in 2014. A game Mayo won 0-13 to 1-09 thanks to two late Andy Moran points.

- David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites)
