Cunningham makes just one change as Roscommon gear up for Dubs clash at HQ

ANTHONY CUNNINGHAM HAS made just one change to his Roscommon team to face All-Ireland champions Dublin in the second round of the Super 8s at Croke Park on Saturday (7pm).

Brian Stack replaces Hubert Darcy at wing forward in a move that Cunningham made over 10 minutes before half-time in the Rossies’ defeat to Tyrone last weekend.

The Connacht champions are otherwise unchanged, and are looking to reach an All-Ireland semi-final for the first time in 28 years.

Such a feat would likely require victory over both the Dubs and Cork, however — the latter of whom square off with Tyrone in the early half of Saturday’s doubleheader at HQ.
