Here are the players that impressed us most in round three of the Allianz Hurling Leagues...

1. Eoin Murphy (Kilkenny)

The Cats' number one pulled off a brilliant save to thwart Tom Devine's goal attempt in the first-half and later saved Stephen Bennett's penalty effort.



2. Sean Finn (Limerick)

Finn and his Treaty County team-mates continued their winning ways in Division 1B at Dublin's expense in the Gaelic Grounds on Saturday evening.

3. James Barry (Tipperary)

The Premier County inflicted a first defeat on Wexford in Division 1A and next up is a trip to Nowlan Park on Sunday.



4. Adrian Tuohy (Galway)

Tuohy led by example as an experimental Galway outfit comfortably saw off the challenge of Offaly at Pearse Stadium.

5. Conor Delaney (Kilkenny)

Newcomer Delaney caught the eye as Kilkenny came out on top against Waterford in Walsh Park.



6. David McInerney (Clare)

The collective display of the Banner County's half-back line laid the foundations for their four-point success over Cork.

7. Michael O'Malley (Clare)

O'Malley and fellow half-back Seadna Morey chipped in with two points apiece against the Rebel County.



8. Lee Chin (Wexford)

The all-action Chin did his best to drive the Model County on but, on this occasion, was powerless to prevent them from slipping to defeat.

9. Sean Loftus (Galway)

The former All-Ireland winning minor captain impressed in the Galway engine room against Offaly.



10. Martin Keoghan (Kilkenny)

Rumours of Kilkenny's demise may prove to have been greatly exaggerated if Keoghan can maintain the high standards he set against the Deise.

11. TJ Reid (Kilkenny)

The Ballyhale Shamrocks ace was the Cats' main scorer-in-chief and finished with 1-11 to his name.



12. David Reidy (Clare)

Scorer of 0-3, Reidy put in another impressive showing for Clare as they secured their place in the business end of the league with two rounds to spare.

13. Ross King (Laois)

King's accuracy from placed balls - he found the target with 13 frees - 0-16 overall - was a key ingredient in the O'Moore County's win over Antrim.



14. Jason Forde (Tipperary)

Clinical Forde put the memory of last year's on-field confrontation with Davy Fitzgerald behind him to shoot 2-9 against Wexford.

15. Aaron Gillane (Limerick)

Manager John Kiely could afford the luxury of taking Gillane off in the 48th minute of their win over Dublin but not before he had clocked up a return of 1-9.
