Kerry got back on track in the National Football League after a six point win over Roscommon at Dr. Hyde Park.

Paul Geaney and James O’Donoghue stared for the kingdom racking up 1-10 between them.

Clare arguably provided the upset of the weekend with a 2-11 to 0-9 victory over Cork at Cusack Park.

Cork built up an early three point lead but that's as good as it got as a Cian O'Dea goal brought the scores level and Clare never looked back from there.

Jamie Malone scored a goal late on to seal a famous win and give Clare their second league win of the season.

Down recored back-to-back wins with a 1-15 to 1-07 victory over Derry at Owenbeg.

At one stage, Down led by 1-10 to 00 before Derry got the scoreboard ticking over.

A goal from Emmett McGuckin just before the break kept Derry in the game in theory but they rarely threatened to catch Down as the match progressed.

Armagh hammered Offaly 6-22 to 0-10 at the Athletic Grounds.

Niall Rowland, Stefan Campbell, Aidan Grimley, Andrew Murnin, Rory Grugan and Anthony Duffy each found the back of the net as Armach recorded a 30 point win.
