AIB All-Ireland Club SFC quarter-final

(extra-time if necessary)

Tir Chonaill Gaels (London) v Dr Crokes (Kerry), Ruislip, 1.30, D Fahy (Longford).

Munster's two in-a-row champions, with a relatively clean bill of health apart from Eoin Brosnan, are big favourites here.

Their defeat of Castlehaven confirmed just how much depth they have in a squad that includes Colm Cooper (right), Kieran O'Leary, Johnny Buckley, Daithi Casey, Brian Looney and centre-back Mike Moloney, who is familiar with their opponents after his time in London.

The big problem for the 14-time London kingpins is their lack of competition. They haven't had a competitive game since a Division 1 league final at the end of October, while Crokes have been going non-stop both inside and outside Kerry.

No London club has ever won a quarter-final and Tir Chonaill's 13th appearance at this stage was a four-point loss to Kilmurry-Ibrickane in 2010. They'll do well to keep it that close this time.

Verdict: Dr Crokes.

Odds: Dr Crokes 1/16, Tir Chonaill Gaels 15/2, Draw 16/1.
