Outside the sport of it, my personal interest in the Championship these year ended with the departure of Donegal and Down. But in the first half of the Tyrone Kerry clash the Ulster team have done well to keep in touch with a much classier kingdom team. A lot of argybarging just before the whistle. If Tyrone can keep in their skins it could be close by the end. But not for the first time this year, Tyrone’s vintage stars are looking a little tired.
