Tyrone's Damien Casey is the Allianz Hurling League's leading scorer after concluding the group stage with 2-60.

The Dungannon Eoghan Ruadh clubman finished with a flourish having scored 2-11, 0-13 and 0-15 in his last three games to topple Lancashire's Ronan Crowley, who had led since the opening round, while Louth's Niall Arthur (7-41) moves into second spot four points behind his Division 3A competitor.

The Exiles received a bye in the final round but third placed Crowley will have a chance to add to his 4-46 tally when they play Leitrim in the Division 3B decider on Saturday week. Arthur is not done yet either as Louth are also in a league final.

Tipperary's Jason Forde, Limerick's Aaron Gillane, Meath's Jack Regan and Wicklow's Andy O'Brien are the leaders in their respective divisions.
