Kerry 1-5 Donegal 2-8
Donegal lined out with two new faces in the team, Des Dolan and Kevin Cassidy, and a rearranged side with a player or two out of his usual position. Considered hot favourites now, there were some raised eyebrows as the northerners struggled to gel and Kerry really had it well within their grasp to pull of a surprise result, but the Kingdom left too many chances behind them and Donegal came away with the win.
