Golden Meath.

Meath look set to change from green to gold in a bid to achieve All-Ireland glory.

The Royals are prepared to discard their traditional green with gold trimmings jersey for the All-Ireland Gaelic Football Final replay on Sunday week to avoid the confusion of last Sunday.

Complaints from a number of players about the apparent colour clash will lead to the switch.

Mayo's green and red was just too similar to the Royals' green and gold.

Meath captain Tommy Dowd admitted he mistook Pat Holmes for a Meath player in one incident when he passed a ball across the Mayo goalmouth in the second half.

And there were other incidents of unmarked Meath players giving the ball away in uncharacteristic fashion.
