Top three: Gary Walsh (Laois), Paddy McBrearty (Donegal) and Conor Sweeney (Tipperary).

Division 2 leader Conor Sweeney holds third place and is closely followed by Armagh's Ethan Rafferty, last year's overall winner John Heslin and Paul Broderick of Carlow who are all on level points.

With three rounds now complete, Carlow captain John Murphy is the leading goalscorer having netted twice in the win over Leitrim.
