All attention now turns to the knock-out stages of the Allianz Hurling Leagues following the completion of the group stages…

1. Anthony Nash (Cork)

Brilliant saves from Nash kept Cork in the hunt against Tipperary but John Meyler's men came up short.

2. Paddy Smyth (Dublin)

Smyth was one of the standout performers as victory over Laois helped Dublin set up a last eight clash with Tipperary.

3. Richie McCarthy (Limerick)

The relief was almost palpable as McCarthy and his Limerick team-mates navigated their way out of Division 1B.

4. Sean Finn (Limerick)

The Treaty County's full-back line played its part in their two-point success over All-Ireland champions Galway.

5. Austin Gleeson (Waterford)

The former 'Hurler of the Year' and the Deise secured a morale boosting win against Clare ahead of their relegation showdown with Cork.

6. Cillian Buckley (Kilkenny)

A third win in-a-row saw Buckley and the Cats safely through to the last eight of the league.

7. Enda Morrissey (Kilkenny)

The Kilkenny newcomer enjoyed a fine outing in the three-point success over Wexford.

8. Eoghan Campbell (Antrim)

The Saffrons midfielder put in a towering performance as they got the better of Offaly by 2-21 to 2-18.

9. Cian Lynch (Limerick)

The Patrickswell player's fingerprints were all over his team's spirited second-half comeback in Pearse Stadium.

10. Ronan Hayes (Dublin)

Hayes helped himself to 2-4 as Pat Gilroy's side scored an emphatic win over Laois.

11. TJ Reid (Kilkenny)

The Ballyhale man got through a lot of good work and his accuracy from placed balls was up to the usual high standard.

12. Patrick Maher (Tipperary)

Bonner's physical presence and decisive running created plenty of panic in the Rebel County rearguard.

13. Jason Forde (Tipperary)

Forde continued his rich vein of scoring form with a return of 0-12 against Cork and Tipp supporters will be hoping for more of the same against Dublin next Sunday.

14. Seamus Flanagan (Limerick)

Flanagan asked serious questions of the Galway defenders and evaded their attentions to raise five white flags.

15. Patrick Curran (Waterford)

Curran took over the free-taking duties from Pauric Mahony and accumulated 1-13 (0-9 frees) against Clare.
