Rory O’Connor (Wexford)
Wexford sharp-shooter Rory O’Connor has been on fire so far this year. He was their man again in Sunday’s win over Cork, scoring 1-12, of which 1-6 came from play.
Padraig Walsh (Kilkenny)
Walsh’s relocation from defence to attack has been a huge success so far this year for Kilkenny. He excelled again on Sunday against Waterford, scoring five points from play and winning a huge amount of ball.
Fergal Whitely (Dublin)
Kilmacud Crokes man Fergal Whitely had had a prolific League campaign and saved his best yet for Sunday’s win over Laois. He scored seven points from play and ran himself into the ground.
