In our heads, we're all competent sportspeople but the reality is different within Off The Ball.

Kevin Kilbane and Mossy Quinn aside, the National Indoor Arena was devoid of sporting pedigree. But that didn't stop us. Team OTB and competition winners split up along tribal lines for our charity match for the Irish Heart Foundation.

It was Dubs (and Adrian Barry) vs Culchies, with ex-Ireland boss' John Giles and Brian Kerr serving as managers respectively. Ex-Dublin Gaelic footballer Mossy Quinn and Mayo's own Kilbane of course captained their respective regions.

And on commentary for each half was Nathan Murphy and Stephen Doyle, while Ger Gilroy and Richie McCormack provided in-studio analysis of our efforts.

Lineups

Dublin, Culchies, Off The Ball

In the red corner, we had an almost all-Dub selection, bar Westmeath's Adrian. And for the white-clad culchies, eight counties were represented from Donegal and Leitrim to Mayo and Monaghan.

So did the Culchies get one over on the Dubs? Or did the capital side hoard the glory? There's only one way to find out. Watch the full match above including pre and post-match analysis and interviews!

Don’t forget, This Valentine’s Day, the Irish Heart Foundation wants you to Show Some Heart for the Perfect Match! Challenge a rival to a charity football game in aid of the Irish Heart Foundation. Sign up at irishheart.ie/perfectmatch

You can check out the fair Player Ratings (I got a very generous 4/10, the same as a certain ex-Ireland international so will put that on my epitaph) here and also learn more about the Irish Heart Foundation's Show Some Heart campaign right here.
