I warm welcome from Pairc Tailteann, in Navan. The teams are both on the field. We’ll keep you up to take with any changes.
Mickey Harte’s Tyrone team come into the last game of the 2011 National League knowing that anything less than a win against Meath will mean they will remain in Division 2 for next year. However even a win may not be enough for the Tyrone team as their hopes of promotion and a place in the Division Two League Final also depends on the results from the games involving Derry and Laois the two other sides who are also in with a chance of pipping Tyrone for promotion. All the key events and main action will be reported online as Teamtalkmag.com keeps you up to date with tomorrow’s game, a game that could prove hugely important for Tyrone later this season.
