Dublin: 10°C Tuesday 26 October 2021

Today was a good day for Dublin's Dean Rock in more ways than one

Ten points, a league winner’s medal, and top scorer honours – not a bad haul for the Ballymun man.

DEAN ROCK HAS TOPPED the Division 1 scoring charts after playing a starring role in Dublin’s third straight National Football League title.

Rock finished with 0-10 (seven frees) as the Dubs blasted past Cork in Croke Park on Sunday.

It took his total to 1-52 for the league campaign — enough to overtake Colm O’Neill and relegate the Cork marksman into second place.

O’Neill finished with 5-39 after he scored 0-6 (five frees) in the 1-21 to 2-7 defeat.

Down’s Donal O’Hare finished as the Division 2 top scorer with 4-29, though his five points on Sunday were not enough to help the Ulster men past Roscommon.
