Mayo manager James Horan has made seven changes to his team for round three of the Allianz National Football League against Dublin this weekend at Croke Park.

PwC GAA Young Footballer of the Year Oisin Mullin returns to the side at wing back with All-star Matthew Ruane set to start his first league game of 2022 after serving a two-game suspension. Ruane will be partnered by Crossmolina's Jordan Flynn in the middle of the field.

Fresh from his  All-Ireland Junior Football Final victory, Kilmeena's Jack Carney comes into the team at wing forward replacing NUI Galway Sigerson winner Fionn McDonagh.

The other change in attack sees UL Sigerson corner forward Paul Towey replace Jason Doherty. Rory Brickenden replaced Padraig O'Hora at full back with Donncha McHugh replacing Paddy Durcan in the half back line.

Saturday evening's game will be Mayo's 52nd appearance in Croke Park in the league. The match will be live on RTE 2 and live commentary on Midwest Radio.
