Shane Stapleton rates the Mayo players out of ten after their All-Ireland final defeat to Dublin at Croke Park.

David Clarke — 7
Mayo retained 18 of their 22 kickouts, though a few went awry in the second half. Clarke could do nothing about either goal.

Chris Barrett — 8
Marhsalled Dean Rock well.

Oisin Mullin — 7
Mullin will take plenty of positives from this game. Won three kickouts in the first half and knocked over a point.

Lee Keegan — 8
When Mayo were lacking penetration in the first half, Keegan took it upon himself to get involved and ran through Dublin a few times. The huge hit from Michael FItzsimons may have taken a toll, but Keegan played well overall.

Paddy Durcan — 6
Was stationed close to his own goal in the first half and had to be withdrawn at half time. A fully-fit Durcan in flying form would have been a huge addition to Mayo.

Stephen Coen — 5
Didn’t make a huge impact on the game and struggled when full-back on Ciaran Kilkenny in the second half.

Eoghan McLaughlin — 5
Didn’t make a big impact.

Conor Loftus — 6
Fisted over a nice point and did some decent things, but rather subdued.

Matthew Ruane — 7
Showed good drive and appetite for work.

Kevin McLoughlin — 7
Hit some lovely kick passes in the first half that allowed Cillian O’Connor to claim marks. Quieter after the break.

Ryan O’Donoghue — 6
Scored two good points but was turned over a couple of times.

Diarmuid O’Connor — 7
A workhorse performance.

Tommy Conroy — 5
Taken off in the second half after failing to spark.

Aidan O’Shea — 5
Very quiet day at the office overall, but did win some converted frees.

Cillian O’Connor — 7
Hit two from play, converted a couple of marks, and worked hard.

Michael Plunkett for Durcan (ht) — 6
Came in and played his part.

James Carr for Conroy (50) — 5
Didn’t happen for the Ardagh man.

Darren Coen for O’Donoghue (58) — 5
Had a couple of poor attempts but did raise one white flag.

J Flynn for Loftus (62) — 5

J Durcan for McLaughlin (71) — NR
