Joe Brolly joins Will Slattery for an extra episode of The Throw-In to outline why this Dublin team will win the five-in-a-row.

"They're like the Borg of Gaelic football," says Brolly. "They assimilate all other known forms of football to keep improving themselves."

Plus why Mayo need to learn the ruthlessness of Galway and why Kerry had to stop going around in circles and finally give youth its chance. None of it makes any difference though, he says, because Dublin are so far ahead of everyone else and unbeatable.
