We Staged A GAA Draft - Now Tell Us Who Has The Best Team

Last night on Balls.ie's Facebook page, we broadcast the first ever Balls.ie GAA draft. Inspired by the NFL draft that took place last week on Zoom, six members of the Balls.ie family held a draft. We each drafted a sevens team that consisted of six active gaelic footballers and one GAA legend in their prime.

You can watch the draft back now to get a sense of the drama.

There were a few headscratching decisions - Cluxton in the third round - but now we need to know: which team would win?

The list of completed team is below
