For the first time in the Jim Gavin era, Dublin are not going to be competing in a league final, but after defeat to Tyrone, are we reading too much into the Dubs' latest loss?

Vincent Hogan, Conor McKeon and Ciaran Whelan joined Will Slattery on this week’s Throw-In to look back on all the weekend's Allianz League action with Whelan pointing to the forward line as his main source of concern for Dublin.

Kerry’s rise, Tyrone’s turn-around and Mayo’s potential are all pointing to what could be a very exciting football Championship. And let’s not forget Corofin retaining the All Ireland Club title in style as well. The greatest club side ever perhaps?

In hurling, Tipp’s inconsistency reared its head again, but Dublin’s win in Semple Stadium augurs well for their summer and the incredible work done under Mattie Kenny.

Plus, putting up thirty-one points against Clare, Waterford are into a league semi-final against Galway and are quietly going about their business, putting up massive scores along the way.
