"If Tipperary start the way they did against Galway they could be out of sight of Mayo by half-time," warned David Brady on this week's Throw-In podcast.

"Mayo do well against the bigger teams against the likes of Dublin, Tyrone, Kerry, but against the smaller teams they struggle. Mayo love being the underdogs and if experience has taught them anything it's not to let Tipperary get off to a good start. The name Tipperary should be obliterated from the Mayo mindset.”

Former Mayo footballer, David Brady, joined INM GAA correspondents, Frank Roche, Donnchadh Boyle and Conor McKeon on The Throw-In,’s Championship podcast, in association with BoyleSports, as they looked ahead to the All Ireland football semi final between Mayo and Tipperary.

“These two teams are coming from different perspectives in the GAA world but they both have the same base with successful minor and club teams,” said Brady. “Leicester should never have won a Premier League and Connacht should never have won a Pro12 but Tipperary have the momentum behind them and in all sports that is vital.”

Despite his caution, Brady and the rest of the panel still believe that Mayo’s firepower and experience will see them reach the final and have another tilt at their Holy Grail in 2016.

Also on the show, Roy Curtis and Martin Breheny went head-to-head arguing whether this has been one of the worst football championships in recent years. 2016 v 2010 anyone?

And Liam Glynn from BoyleSports was on hand to give some value bets from the Mayo v Tipp clash. For the weekly charity bet, at 7/2, he’s going with Andy Moran to score a goal in the game (anytime), whilst the Throw-In team are going with a 6/1 bet on Cillian O’Connor to be the first goalscorer.
