Man of the match

Cathal Shine (Roscommon)

Dominant at centre-field throughout the game he also nailed two important points for Roscommon.

Talking point

John Evans termed it a 'Gala occasion' and the Roscommon boss wasn't wrong. There is something different about a Championship match played at Ruislip. The marquees and music provide a strange backdrop to the action on the pitch.

Magic Moment

Enda Smith landed four points for Roscommon, but his sweet left-footed point in the 12th minute was a beauty.

Ref Watch

The only real issue was Cathal Og Greene's black card in the 22nd minute. Other than that neither camp had any complaints.
