The sides met in the finals of the league themselves last weekend, although it’s hard to tell how much Roscommon’s 1-20-1-15 win was helped by the fact that Galway had already secured promotion and qualified for the final had. Here’s the match report from that clash.
Conor McKeon’s preview of the Division 2 playoff is online here and Colm Keys took a look at things from the Rossies’ perspective.
Ahead of the finals, Colm also looked back on the league season in general so far.

What do the managers say?
Pádraic Joyce on whether his team could hold off ahead of next month’s championship opener:
“Absolutely not, they give a good hard physical game and that’s what we need going into the Championship on April 24th. One of our goals this year was to get out of Division 2 and play football in Division 1.
“That’s what we achieved, we won most of the game bar today and we got about 33 or 34 players game time, which is great, that’s what it’s about and giving games to guys.
“It’s a league final. We’re going to fix ourselves this week and put a little more fighting spirit into the team and we’re going to try to win that game next week. It will be a difficult task. We saw terribly today what Roscommon can do.”
Anthony Cunningham after Roscommon’s weekend win over Galway:
“Look, we had to win, it was different for Galway.
“We had our backs to the wall until the last game, we had to win and I’m happy with the performance.
“We definitely treated every game in this league as if it was a knockout game and otherwise we wouldn’t have advanced.”
