*Patrick Curran *was at his brilliant best during Waterford's Walsh Park win over Clare on Sunday afternoon.
Curran finished the contest with a 1-13 haul, including 1-4 from play illustrating his admirable attacking instincts for Derek McGrath's team.
Limerick had many heroes at Pearse Stadium on Sunday, but Seamus Flanagan's five point contribution from play was immense for John Kiely's outfit.
Flanagan registered important scores in the first half too when Limerick were in severe bother and his crafty full forward display inspired the Treatymen.
It has been a busy spell for in form UL and Tipperary star Jason Forde, who continues to score heavily in the blue and gold jersey.
The talented Silvermines clubman struck 0-12 during Tipperary's triumph over Cork at Semple Stadium with Forde a constant threat throughout.
