Ros to boss semi

ROSCOMMON v TYRONE

(Markievicz Pk, Today 6.0, live TG4)

HERE'S one good reason to predict the onward march of the Rossie underage revolution in Sligo this evening - they aren't playing Dublin!

In three of the last four seasons, they've emerged from Connacht only to see All-Ireland dreams dashed by young men in Blue - in a 2010 semi-final and the finals of both 2012 and again in '14.

If could happen again this year, but first Roscommon must build on the county's first ever provincial back-to-back (after an absorbing victory over Galway) by seeing off a Tyrone side that barely squeezed their way past Donegal.

ODDS: Ros 4/9 Draw 15/2 Tyrone 9/4

VERDICT: Roscommon
