Meath's Paddy O'Rourke and Conor McGill

The Meath team to face Down in round 3 of the Allianz Football League shows two changes from the side that defeated Derry last time out.

Graham Reilly returns to the fold having missed the Derry game because of St Colmcille's appearance in the All-Ireland club final. The team captain comes in for Conor Downey.

Having impressed when coming on as a substitute in the round 2 victory at Pairc Tailteann, Ruairi O Coileann comes in to the full back line with Mickey Burke making way.  

Dual star James Toher resumes his midfield partnership with Bryan Menton. Toher lined out for the Meath hurlers last Sunday in their Division 2B win over Derry.
