On this episode of The Throw-In, Will Slattery chats to Joe Brolly about all the weekend's football action.

Joe reflects on Mayo's qualifier defeat to Kildare in Newbridge and says that Mayo's chance of winning an All-Ireland has come and gone. He adds that they lack pace in the forward line which has hurt them against the top teams.

In contrast, Brolly thinks that Kerry are resurgent this season and are 'coming for the Dubs' with all the young talent they have in the forward line.

Will and Joe also look ahead to round four of the qualifiers, as Brolly gives his verdict on what we can expect this weekend.

Brolly also says that he doesn't mind that Dublin will be playing two games at Croke Park in the Super 8s, while every other team will just play one.
