Hectic weekend with the Dubs facing the Rebels in top of the table clash so why not watch it live in the Clubhouse from 7pm

After a three-week break following the first two rounds, the Allianz Football League is heading into a hectic period, with action in all four divisions on five of the next six weekends

The busy programme promises to produce a feast of excellent football as the campaign builds towards an exciting climax in early April which will decide the key issues such as semi-final places in Division 1 as well as promotion and relegation issues in all four divisions.

Round 3 takes place this Saturday and Sunday with some very appetising clashes on the 16-game programme.

Cork have made seven changes in personnel from the win over Kildare, and a raft of positional switches in a powerful selection for Saturday night’s NFL1 clash with Dublin in Croke Park (7.0).

Dublin have only made four changes to their starting 15. Seán George resumes at full-back (following suspension) with Philly McMahon moving to corner-back and Darragh Nelson losing out from the side which defeated Westmeath last time out.

James McCarthy will make his first appearance of the year at centre-back following injury (groin/hip) with Cian O’Sullivan now sited at midfield alongside Michael Darragh Macauley.

In attack Bryan Cullen will start at left half-forward with Ciarán Reddin moving to full-forward in place of Eoghan O’Gara while Cormac Costello, who made his league starting debut against Kerry in Round 1 of the NFL, at left full-forward after missing the Westmeath tie owing to illness – Shane Carthy and Paul Mannion are the other players selected against the midlanders who are not selected on this occasion.

Remember match is live in the Clubhouse at 7pm
