The competition among the current players in the experts' league in Fantasy Gaelic is really hotting up. Wexford's Graeme Molloy, who is in action today against Louth, came from fifth place to overtake Galway's Conor Costello, his Model County team-mate Brian Malone, Peter Domican of Roscommon and Kildare's Michael Konstantin to nab the top spot.

Last week, before Kildare beat Offaly 0-16 to 1-11, Konstantin was the only Kildare player in the top 10, but he's been now relegated from the leaderboard, with Emmet Bolton, Ronan Sweeney and Paddy Brophy all featuring prominently.

In the Sunday Independent League Colm O'Rourke and his 'Desperados' have been knocked off the top spot by former Sligo midfielder Con O'Meara, who racked up an impressive 191 points. O'Rourke is now in sixth place with 175 points while Eamonn O'Hara is closing in on his fellow pundit, earning 163 points after just one week in the League. O'Hara's strategy of making Tomás ó Sé captain paid dividends as the Kerry back earned him 28 points. The Fielder and his 15 are languishing fifth from bottom.
