FOOTBALLER OF THE Year nominee Neil McGee and Mayo defender Keith Higgins both look set to claim their third Allstar after stellar seasons but the third choice is a tricky one.

The Sunday Game panel opted for Aidan O’Mahony as corner-back on their Team of the Year, but the Rathmore defender has since received his Allstar nomination on the half-back line.

That leaves All-Ireland final man-of-the-match Paul Murphy, Eamon McGee and Fionn Fitzgerald more than likely fighting for the final slot in the full-back line – or does someone else deserve the award?

Full-back line nominees:
Drew Wylie (Monaghan)
Fionn Fitzgerald (Kerry)
Keith Higgins (Mayo)
Éamon McGee (Donegal)
Neil McGee (Donegal)
Andy Mallon (Armagh)
Philly McMahon (Dublin)
Rory O’Carroll (Dublin)
Paul Murphy (Kerry)
