On this week's episode of The Throw-In Football Show in association with Allianz, Dublin legend Ciaran Whelan, Irish Independent GAA correspondent Martin Breheny and Herald GAA correspondent Conor McKeon join Independent.ie's Will Slattery to discuss all the weekend's action.

A second half blitz saw Dublin blow Kildare away, and Whelan had plenty of praise for Dublin's 'Rolls Royce' of a midfielder, Brian Fenton. In Killarney, Kerry looked to the future with young stars like David Clifford, Sean Ó Sé and Jason Foley handed starting roles in the narrow win over Donegal.

The lads analyse the impact made by Kerry's next generation, and discuss Donegal's commitment to playing a more open brand of football this year.

Tipperary's impressive win in Cork, Mayo's hot start to Division 1 and Tyrone's struggles in Galway are all also up for discussion.
