AFTER LAST NIGHT’S clashes in Roscommon and Omagh, the Super 8s attention shifts to Newbridge and Clones this afternoon.

There’s Group 1 games down for decision with Kildare entertaining Galway at 2pm in St Conleth’s Park while Monaghan host Kerry at 4pm in St Tiernach’s Park. For Galway and Monaghan, there is a chance to take a major step towards the All-Ireland semi-final stage after last Sunday’s wins in Croke Park while Kildare and Kerry need to mount a response to save their championship seasons.

It’s only the fifth ever championship meeting between Galway and Kildare with the Tribesmen winning the big ties played out most recently in the 2000 All-Ireland semi-final and the 1998 All-Ireland final.

For Monaghan and Kerry, this is the seventh time they have crossed paths in the championship arena. Monaghan have never won, their best result coming in 1985 when they forced an All-Ireland semi-final draw, with narrow defeats suffered in 2007 and 2008 in Croke Park.

So how do you see today’s encounters unfolding? Pick your likely winners from the two showdowns.
