Sunday's defeat to Galway represents a bad blow to Mayo's hopes for progress in this year's Championship, sending them once more off down the qualifier road, with all manner of doubts about how the rest of the summer will play out for them. In this episode of the Mayo News Football Podcast, Rob Murphy is joined by Billy Joe Padden and Barry Cullinane to assess the game and where its outcome leaves both counties.
The lads discuss how the game played out on Sunday, pinpointing what went wrong for Mayo on the day, how Galway set up and how they won it. They also consider Mayo's attacking approach, their decision to persist with a one-on-one approach at the back and their use of the bench. Turning to Galway, the lads discuss how their summer is likely to shape up following what was a hugely important win for the Tribesmen over their great provincial rivals.
