Rory on a Rebel mission

DONEGAL v CORK, TOM, ballyshannon (2.0)

DONEGAL'S last Sky Blue showdown proved far less profitable than the previous one. They had nine of their All-Ireland semi-final starters, compared to Dublin's four - plus an extra man for 25 minutes.

In theory it was a game there for the taking but, amid all the fractiousness between two teams who have clearly grown to dislike each other, it was obvious that Rory Gallagher's men need to fine-tune their football - especially their shooting.

Still, it's probably no harm that they face a Cork team whose February focus was reflected in back-to-back wins, albeit they could just as easily have lost to Dublin and Monaghan.

ODDS: Donegal 8/11, Draw 15/2, Cork 6/4

VERDICT: Donegal
