The Galway senior footballers will head to Croke Park this weekend for their All-Ireland quarter-final clash with Kerry (2pm) knowing that they will have to considerably increase their intensity and work-rate all over the field if they are going to stop Kerry playing the free-flowing football that ripped Cork to shreds in the Munster final.
