Pointing way: Dean Rock’s unerring accuracy can boost Dessie Farrell’s side as they strive to capture ‘Sam’ yet again

In a year that pertinent figures relative to health and wellbeing have quite rightly dominated the airwaves and television screens, there is perhaps one rather telling sporting statistic that might just have slipped under the radar.

Yet it could prove to have telling implications in tomorrow night's eagerly-awaited All-Ireland football final between Dublin and Mayo.

No strangers to re-writing the record books either collectively or on an individual front, Dessie Farrell's side will go into the game looking for their sixth successive All-Ireland crown and buoyed by having the county's highest-ever scorer in league and championship football as a shining beacon in their attack.
