For ten minutes it was 'footballing perfection' as the Dubs blitzed Mayo to leave them in the dust.

Was it as good as Dublin have played under Jim Gavin and what chance does Kerry have of stopping them in the final?

Tomás Ó Sé joined Will Slattery, Michael Verney, Conor McKeon and Donnchadh Boyle to look back on the weekend semi-finals and Ó'Sé reckons there's too many what-ifs for the Kingdom to win.

"Do Kerry press forward? You have to target Stephen Cluxton, but do you trust the Kerry defence? There’s so many fires for Kerry to put out all over the pitch," he says.

The panel also discusses the future of Mickey Harte and whether he is still the best person to lead Tyrone football, plus they give their picks for their Rising Stars.
