Stephen Rochford names unchanged Mayo team for All-Ireland final

There was only ever one spot that may have been up for grabs but Stephen Rochford has opted to leave in-form Paddy Durcan in reserve.

Mayo are the first team to blink as Stephen Rochford, shortly after 9pm, named his starting team for Sunday's All-Ireland final against Dublin.

The westerners will go into their second successive All-Ireland final with the same 15 men that started the semi-final replay victory over Kerry.

13 of the starting 15 players began last year's final replay against Dublin, with Jamie Clarke [who started in the final] and Chris Barrett the only two that did not. Durcan and reserve goalkeeper Robbie Hennelly will both be on the bench, along with the likes of Conor O'Shea and Conor Loftus.

Sunday's final will be the 90th inter-county appearance for three-time All Star Colm Boyle.

It will be interesting to see how these 15 men line out for the final but a lot may rest on the team named by Dublin boss Jim Gavin.
