Calum Lyons voted GAA.ie Hurler of the Week
Calum Lyons has been voted GAA.ie Hurler of the Week.
The Waterford defender received 3,970 votes from the public ahead of Tipperary's Cathal Barrett (3,115) and Donegal's Declan Coulter (1,930).
Calum Lyons (Waterford)
Waterford’s flying wing-back, Calum Lyons, is developing into one of the most dynamic defenders in the game. Not content with stopping the opposition, he’s also a potent attacking threat himself which he underlined once again with three points from play for Waterford in their impressive Allianz Hurling League Division 1 victory over Limerick on Sunday.
Cathal Barrett (Tipperary)
Corner-backs rarely get the limelight but there was mistaking Barrett’s class in Tipperary’s Allianz Hurling League Division 1 win over Galway on Saturday. Dominant in the air, hard but fair in the tackle, and imperious in terms of his ability to read the play and clear ball, it was hugely impressive display by the Holycross man.
Declan Coulter (Donegal)
The highly consistent Coulter excelled again for the Donegal hurlers in their big Division 2 win over Mayo. He scored two goals in the space of a minute late in the first half to give his team a winning momentum, and finished with a personal tally of 2-8.
