How to watch Kerry v Mayo
As GAA GO attention turns away from Hurling, Kerry v Mayo will be streamed live on GAAGO with coverage starting at 14:30 ahead of throw-in at 15:00.
Kerry's form has been top-class. They started the Allianz leagues slowly finishing fifth, but since then they've picked up form with obvious improvements week to week. They cruised through the Munster Championship with little resistance beating Tipperary 0-25 to 0-5 before thrashing Clare by fourteen points in the Munster Final.
On the other hand, we haven't seen Mayo play in five weeks. Where they're at as a team will be very hard to tell until they take to the pitch on Saturday. They enjoyed a stellar league campaign where they finished top of the table before beating local rivals Galway in the final. With a healthy mix of experience, youth and depth they looked like real Sam Maguire contenders, however, they went out to Roscommon in the first round of the Connacht Championship and it's been all quiet on the Western Front since.
Kerry are the obvious favourites, they're the defending champions and if their current run of form continues they'll be hard beat. However, Mayo are in unchartered territory they've had five weeks to prepare for this game and if they've built on their league form it could be a lot closer than Kerry fans would like.
Unsurprisingly Jack O'Connor makes no changes to his Kerry team who thrashed Clare in the Munster Senior Football Final two weeks ago. David Clifford Leads the side out while Paul Murphy and Donal O'Sullivan both make their returns to the matchday squad with the two named on the bench.

Kevin McStay has made three changes to his side from their loss against Roscommon six weeks ago. David McBrien and Sam Callinan both come into the starting back three to well up the defensive frailties, while James Carr comes in at full-forward and Paddy Durcan captains the side.
