Aaron Kernan's dream XV: Armagh man selects his dream side of former team-mates

A fierce collection of Ulster tough-nuts and one Dub

Aaron Kernan may have called time on his career as an Armagh footballer last year but there's little doubt the Crossmaglen man was one of the finest players of his generation. The wing back saw off many opponents in his 11-year career and anyone who crossed his path wasn't going to forget the immensely physically strong half back.

When selecting his best 15 to have played with he's gone for a fairly strong Ulster contingent with just one man from outside of the north at top of the left.

He almost went full 'Karl Lacey' by selecting an entire Ulster XV but Bernard Brogan does make the cut in corner-forward.

If you're looking for a team with a steel fist inside a velvet glove this would more than fit the bill. Kernan is so much in awe of the players he's lined up at club, county, college and with the Inter-provincials series as well as at international level he's gone and left himself out.

If we could line them up against Darran O Sullivan's XV it would be pure box office.
