GAA Hurling Team of the Week(28/05/12)

There were wins this weekend for Tipperary in the Munster championship and Wicklow in the Christy Ring, Down and London drew.

1. Brendan Cummins (Tipperary) – Outstanding save from Mulcahy and didn’t deserve to concede from the rebound. A rock in the Premier goal.

2. Stephen Walsh (Limerick) – Solid at corner-back throughout. Not much chance to break forward but worked effortlessly.

3. Paul Curran (Tipperary) – Gave Cummins the best protection he could at the back. Worked tirelessly to snuff out numerous Limerick attacks.

4. Fintan Conway (Down) – Defending well against a tough London side. Will need more of the same in the replay.

5. Tommy Stapleton (Tipperary) – Got forward on numerous occasions. Made some brilliant blocks. Never gave his man a minute’s peace.

6. Donal O’ Grady (Limerick) – Never let his man out of his sight and got forward on a few occasions. Passing as usual was his strongest attribute.

7. Pádraic Maher (Tipperary) – Excellent running and some important charge-downs. Put in a real shift in the half-back line.

8. Stephen Clinch (Meath) – Imperious in the Meath midfield and didn’t deserve to be on the losing side. Fully earned his goal.

9. Andy Savage (Down) – Trojan effort in the centre of the park. Impressive work-rate was the link man to get Down on the front foot.

10. Conor Ailis (Limerick) – Made a huge impression on his championship debut. Important scores and set up goal.

11. Pa Bourke (Tipperary) – Scored a crucial goal right when Tipp needed. Some nice fielding.

12. Shane Dowling (Limerick) – Started as he meant to go on with four points in the first ten minutes. Excellent on the day.

13. Graham Mulcahy (Limerick) – Took his goal at the second time of asking.

14. Wayne O’ Gorman (Wicklow) – Started at centre-forward but was tireless in his efforts up front. Well deserved goal.

15. Andy O’ Brien (Wicklow) – Early goal crucial for the Garden County. Made a nuisance of himself in amongst the Meath defence.
