Has any other player a record (from play) comparable to this?

Noel McGrath has played 52 championship matches for Tipperary, scoring in all but two, an unbelievable 96% strike-rate.
Even more incredible is the fact that a man now more renowned as a play-maker has scored from play in 49 of those 52 outings, a stunning 94%!!

Only someone with a very small mind would dislike those comments.

Don't know of any hurlers but Paul Geaney has played 33 championship matches for Kerry, scored in 31 of them and from play in 30 of them.

He didn't score on debut as a sub against Cavan in 2013, kicked a free in the drawn game against Mayo in 2014 but none from play and didn't score against Monaghan last year.
