AFL rookie makes return off the bench as Meath champions complete stunning comeback

Conor Nash has just completed his first season in Australia with Hawthorn.

CONOR NASH FEATURED in his first game for Simonstown in almost a year when he came on as a first-half substitute during their 4-12 to 2-16 win over Dunboyne in the Meath SFC quarter-final.

Nash, who joined AFL outfit Hawthorn last October, was summoned from the bench as reigning champions Simonstown appeared to be in dire trouble.

They tailed by 2-10 to 0-5 at half-time but a couple of Mark McCabe goals early in the second period set the wheels in motion for a stunning comeback. Shane O’Rourke, son of Meath legend Colm, kicked a score as the title holders began to gain a foothold at midfield.

Nash made a devastating run for a Padraig McKeever goal, and the latter bagged his second goal in the final few minutes as Simonstown completed a remarkable turnaround.

Simonstown will face neighbours Wolf Tones in the last four.
