Just seventy minutes left – what a year of hurling it’s been. The old rivals Kilkenny and Tipperary meet in the final, Limerick fail to defend their crown – back to the drawing board for Cork, Waterford and Galway, while Laois and Wexford had their days in the sun.
It’s been an incredibly memorable summer of scintillating scoring, but who raised the most flags this year? Ten stars amassed at least 24 points, with the top scorer gathering an amazing 5-72 in this year’s championship.
Many of these men will be in All-Star contention in a few weeks’ time, having spearheaded their counties challenges by means of splitting the posts with regularity.
Given that many of these stars are household names, we’ve given you three minutes to come up with the answers – with most true hurling fans surely capable of full marks.
Seventy minutes at least remain on the clock, with plenty of flags yet to be raised. It’s been a wonderful championship, and a high-scoring affair would prove a fitting end, as old rivals do battle in one of the most competitive years in recent memory.
