It could be a blessing in disguise for Mayo too. Rochford took some gambles in his selection and they all proved to be wrong.
Keegan will be restored to the wing, Boyle back to the team. Brendan Harrison back to the first 15. They need to figure out the Aidan O Se conundrum.
Also while Clarke is a fine shot stopper- his kick-outs are not at the required standard currently.
Had Mayo won the team would have remained as is and they’d have definitely been beaten later in the year
