Fantasy5live Three to Watch:

Colm Cooper has scored 1-21 so far in the 2012 All Ireland series, 1-13 of which have come from play, and his 1-04 against Clare saw he become the all time top scorer in Championship history. At 29 year and with 4 All Ireland’s under his belt his experience will be vital and boot will be vital if Kerry are to overcome a hungry Donegal side. Cooper was top scorer in the Championship last year with 2-27 and is well on course to emulate that feat again this year.

Colm McFadden currently lies 6th on the 2012 Championship top scoring charts with 2-17 so far this year and scored 6 points in the 11 point win over Down in the Ulster final. His 1-06 in the clash with Cavan was crucial on their way to a second successive Ulster title and he scored another goal against Derry in the quarter final. McFadden will give the Kerry backline a tough afternoon.

Michael Murphy has so far failed to re-produce the form of last year as he overcomes an early season injury and a loss of form however Sunday’s game is the perfect chance to show that he is back at his best. The 22 year old showed a slight return to form in the historic Ulster final win over Down and despite living in the shadows of McFadden on the point scoring front the full forward could have a big role to play in Sunday’s quarter final. Only grabbed a point in the win over Down but he physicality played a large role in Frank McGlynn’s goal in the Ulster final.

So why not log onto and register for Sunday’s big game.
