The Allianz hurling leagues are coming to the boil nicely, here's our team of the week...

1. Mark Fanning (Wexford)

Fanning and his Model County team-mates are perched proudly at the top of the Division 1A table following their win over Clare.

2. Ben Conneely (Offaly)

The St Rynagh's clubman caught the eye as the Kevin Martin managed Offaly recorded their second win of the Division 1B campaign when finishing with five points to spare over Laois.

3. Liam Ryan (Wexford)

Ryan proved to be the rock on which many a Clare attack perished in Wexford Park.

4. Paddy Deegan (Kilkenny)

Deegan's high fielding was a highlight of the Cats' thrilling one-point success over arch rivals Tipperary.

5. Paudie Foley (Wexford)

After spending last year travelling, Foley's return has considerably strengthened the Wexford half-back line.  

6. Cillian Buckley (Kilkenny)

The Kilkenny captain led by example when the pressure came on in Nowlan Park.

7. Tadhg De Burca (Waterford)

The Deise sweeper went about his business with the minimum of fuss as Derek McGrath's side got their first Division 1A points on the board.

8. Austin Gleeson (Waterford)

The Mount Sion star sent over two long range points against Cork and drove his team forward at every available opportunity.

9. Paul Browne (Limerick)

Browne and Limerick are gearing themselves up for a crucial clash with All-Ireland champions Galway this coming weekend.

10. John Conlon (Clare)

Conlon gave the Wexford defence plenty to think about but was powerless to prevent his team from slipping to a four point defeat.

11. TJ Reid (Kilkenny)

The Ballyhale Shamrocks ace was at his brilliant best when accumulating 0-13 in the minimum margin victory over the Premier County.

12. Jack O'Connor (Wexford)

The Wexford tactic of aiming their puck-outs in O'Connor's direction worked a treat against Clare.

13. Jason Flynn (Galway)

Galway didn't have it all their own way against Dublin but Flynn's impressive return of 1-9 sent them on the road to a six point success.

14. Michael Breen (Tipperary)

Breen pilfered the Cats to the tune of 2-9 and can consider himself very unlucky to have finished up on the losing side.

15. Joe Bergin (Offaly)

Bergin used his experienced to telling effect when hitting 1-4 against Laois on home soil.
