1. Ian O’Regan (Mount Sion)
Rolled back the years with a super save from Jack Fagan. The ball seemed destined for the roof of the net.

2. Shane McNulty (De La Salle)

Swept up around the De La Salle defence and soloed out with possession. Always available for a short puckout.

3. Luke O’Brien (Mount Sion)
Won a key duel with Thomas Douglas on the edge of the square. Dealt with high ball and low ball and got his head up to find his team mates.

4. Tadhg Foley (Ballygunner)
Got a handle on the lively Lee Hearne. Growing in stature in the Gunners defence.

5. Rory Furlong (Roanmore)
Won two first half frees and kept an eye on Mikey Mahony. Drove his team forward.

6. Stephen O’Neill (Mount Sion)
Mopped up loose ball as the spare Sion defender. Covered in front of Thomas Douglas and Reuben Halloran.

7. Conor Sheahan (Ballygunner)

Struck two first half points from midfield. A half time switch to wing back saw him take care of Ethan Flynn.

8. Stephen Roche (Mount Sion)

Covered every blade of grass. Unselfishly set up scores and hit two points of his own.

9. Jack Fagan (De La Salle)
Followed Austin Gleeson absolutely everywhere. Made some terrific interceptions off his county colleague and strode forward to shoot a point.

10. Ian Beecher (Tallow)
Five points from play for the Waterford panellist. Got the better of Micheal Harney as a roving centre forward.

11. Owen Whelan (Mount Sion)

A workaholic centre forward. Battles hard and hits hard. Two points on Sunday and thirteen this season.

12. Alan Kirwan (Mount Sion)
Found pockets of space in the Salle defence. Shot three first half points and assisted Martin O’Neill’s second half goal.

13. Dessie Hutchinson (Ballygunner)

1-2 for the ever-dangerous Dessie as he shook off the close attentions of Cian Wadding. His equalising goal came at a crucial time for the champions.

14. Kevin Mahony (Ballygunner)

Scored two points, won four frees and supplied the first half goal for Hutchinson. A grafter up top for the Gunners.

15. Martin O’Neill (Mount Sion)

1-3 from play in the second half. His goal burst the bottom corner of the net.
