Tyrone's Conor McKenna Pulls Off Outrageous Solo Dummy In AFL Victory

Tyrone's Conor McKenna Pulls Off Outrageous Solo Dummy In AFL Victory
By Maurice Brosnan

The oldest and most reliable trick in the book.

In recent years the AFL has seen an explosion of Gaelic football skills within the sport, brought in by a cohort of talented Irish prospects. A man who has led the charge is Tyrone's Conor McKenna.

It worked last year and it worked again today during Essendon's 15.6 to 10.15 victory over Adelaide.

The 23-year-old helped his side claw back a 30-point deficit.

It's not just McKenna who has benefited from his background. GAA skill-sets can prove beneficial to Irish AFL prospects, as Cork's Mark Keane told Balls.ie last month. 

I found hurling, especially in the backline, is very similar. It's about technically picking out options. That has helped massively. You have to be aware, picking out a good pass or reading the ball.
