The Roscommon team to play Dublin in their opening game of the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Series in Croke Park on Sunday next shows one change from the team defeated by Galway in the Connacht SFC semi-final last month.

Cian McKeon gets his first start of the season, having come off the bench and impressing in recent games, including kicking two points against the Tribesmen in Dr. Hyde Park.

Conor Daly is the player to lose out, although the Pádraig Pearses player is named among the substitutes.

The team will be captained by Brian Stack who has been picked at full-back.

Ciarán Lennon from Clann na nGael has been picked at number 9, with Dylan Ruane named at number 7.

Shane Cunnane is named among the substitutes but there’s no place for Daire Cregg among the match-day 26.
