The Dubs are defending their Leinster title against Westmeath and while Brogan couldn’t see a way past Dublin, he still cautioned that the Dubs can’t think it will be easy either.

“Dublin have just too much talent but they can’t let any complacency set in against Westmeath,” he told presenter Frank Roche, who was also joined by INM GAA Correspondents, Michael Verney, Donnchadh Boyle, and Conor McKeon.

As to how Westmeath would take on Dublin, the question was whether they should have a go or sit back and contain what they concede. 

Alan Brogan though was clear how they should approach it.

“Tom Cribben should allow his Westmeath players to express themselves and try and come out and attack,” he said.  “Dublin will probably only have one extra man in the back so there will be opportunities for Westmeath’s forwards.”

Elsewhere, everyone was hoping for a better spectacle in the Connacht replay than was served up last week while the Tyrone-Dongeal battle in Ulster promises to be a fraught and embattled encounter. Each of the Throw-In team tipped Tyrone win out in the end.

Leon Blanche from BoyleSports was also on the show as everyone tried to make amends for two losing betting weeks and in the €50 charity bet, Leon’s treble was a 5/1 bet on Westmeath +16, Tyrone and Galway to win.  The Throw-In team opted for a 4/1 double of Tyrone -2 and Galway -1.

Latest episodes of the Throw-In podcast will be available every Thursday on Independent.ie and listeners can subscribe to the show on iTunes.
