Brogan doubtful for Australia

Dublin's Bernard Brogan is facing a club v country dilemma, and could miss the upcoming International Rules series if his club qualifies for the Dublin SFC final.

If St. Oliver Plunkett's/Eoghan Ruadh should defeat St. Brigid's in Saturday's Dublin SFC semi-final, Brogan would miss the opening International Rules Test against Australia, as the county final is scheduled for the weekend of October 22-24.

"I think the dates are meant to be the same - the weekend of the 23rd," said Brogan, who missed the 2008 tour to Australia when Plunkett's last reached the final.

"We have to beat Brigid's first and it would be a nice predicament to be in, but it would be something you'd have to make a decision on. I don't know what way that will go."
