That shouldn’t happen”“It’s those incidents that have highlighted to a lot of people that there’s a deficiency in the full back line when the pressure is on  and they need to sure that defence up in a big way.“I’m not sure if they have the personnel changes to do that so perhaps, and we don’t know what they’ve been doing behind closed doors in the last six months, perhaps they’re going to drop players back and put up a defensive screen against teams, I thought last week when Galway brought players back Donegal struggled to open them up,” Earley told Newstalk from the launch of the 2015 Texaco Asian Games.  PAUL EARLEY: MAYO STILL HAVE SUSPECT DEFENCE was last modified: August 5th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalMayoNewstalkPaul EarleySKY TVlast_img
