Who should join James O'Donoghue and Cillian O'Connor in the Allstar full-forward line?
Two Kerrymen could be fighting it out for the full-forward spot.

MICHAEL MURPHY’S deployment on the half-forward line leaves space for another Allstar for one of the inside forwards selected. James O’Donoghue and Cillian O’Connor were on free-scoring form throughout the summer and they should get the nod in either corner.

That looks to leave a straight-out battle between two Kerrymen, Kieran Donaghy and Paul Geaney, for the full-forward spot, with none of the other contenders posting strong enough form to threaten them.

Full-forward line nominees:
Kieran Donaghy (Kerry)
Paul Geaney (Kerry)
Conor McManus (Monaghan)
Cillian O’Connor (Mayo)
James O’Donoghue (Kerry)
Brian Hurley (Cork)
Kevin McManamon (Dublin)
Tony Kernan (Armagh)
Paddy McBrearty (Donegal)
Sunday Game pundits chose:
O’Connor, Michael Murphy, O’Donoghue
Previous Allstars:
Donaghy (2), McManus (1), O’Donoghue (1)

To round off our team, what three full-forwards deserve an Allstar?

Poll Results:

Kieran Donaghy (401)
 James O’Donoghue (234)
 Cillian O’Connor (165)
 Paul Geaney (162)
 Paddy McBrearty (76)
 Kevin McManamon (62)
 Brian Hurley (50)
 Conor McManus (49)
 Tony Kernan (23)

Can anyone stop David Moran and Neil Gallagher from collecting Allstars at midfield?

The Allstars – are Michael Murphy and Diarmuid Connolly nailed on for half-forward slots?
