With the start of the Allianz HLs looming over the horizon, teams are beginning to crank up their preparations. Here is our hurling team of the week...

1. Conor Slevin (Offaly)

Slevin kept a clean sheet as Kevin Martin's Faithful County side registered a 1-18 to 0-18 success over Westmeath.

2. Bill O'Carroll (Dublin)

The Dublin hurlers bounced back from a challenge defeat to Tipperary on Saturday to get the better of Antrim 24 hours later.

3. Conor Cleary (Clare)

Cleary produced an impressive showing in Clare's 11-point Munster Senior Hurling League win over Cork.

4. Shaun Murphy (Wexford)

Murphy was particularly effective in cutting off the supply to Wicklow's inside forward line

5. Seadna Morey (Clare)

Morey made the scoresheet with two points as the Banner County booked their place in the Munster SHL final.

6. David McInerney (Clare)

The 2013 All-Star also stood out for the Donal Moloney/Gerry O'Connor managed side.

7. Johnny McCaffrey (Dublin)

McCaffrey's delivery into the Dublin attack helped to put Antrim on the back foot.

8. Colm Galvin (Clare)

Galvin and his partner Ryan Taylor enjoyed the better of the midfield exchanges against the Rebel County.

9. Diarmuid O'Keeffe (Wexford)

O'Keeffe raised three white flags in the Model County's facile victory over Wicklow 'A'.

10. Barry Nash (Limerick)

Nash helped himself to 1-5 against Kerry as the Treaty County set up a final showdown with Clare.

11. Conor McDonald (Wexford)

The Wicklow defence struggled to cope with McDonald's physicality and he sent over 0-6 (four from play).

12. Daniel Kearney (Cork)

Despite Kearney's best effort, John Meyler's charges played second fiddle to Clare.

13. Alan Moore (Dublin)

The St Vincent's clubman impressed with a return of 2-1 against Antrim.

14. Seamus Flanagan (Limerick)

John Kiely's side finished with 10 points to spare over the Kingdom and Flanagan registered 2-2.

15. John Walsh (Kilkenny)

Walsh took the scoring honours with 2-6 as the Cats showed no mercy to Kildare.
