Jack McCaffrey starts at wing-forward as Jim Gavin radically overhauls Dublin team to play Monaghan
2015 All Stars Footballer of the Year Jack McCaffrey is set to start in Dublin's half-forward line for Saturday's All-Ireland quarter-final with Monaghan.
As part of a radical overhaul from the Dublin side that defeated Kildare by nine points in last month's Leinster Senior Football Championship final, McCaffrey moves to wing-forward in place of Con O'Callaghan who moves to centre-half-forward.
Paul Mannion moves from the centre of Dublin's half-forward line to corner-forward, while Paddy Andrews shifts from corner-forward to full-forward.
Jonny Cooper returns to the starting side at right-half-back while Cian O'Sullivan occupies his regular position at full-back, with Niall Scully dropping out of the matchday XV.
As can be seen below, it's a vastly different side to the team Gavin named for the Leinster final against Kildare last month.
