We’ve picked the best of the U23s to keep an eye on this season.

WHILE THE OFFICIAL start date of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was 23 April with the beginning of the round-robin tournament in Leinster, for many, it really began in late May with a shock win for Cork over Tipperary in their Munster quarter-final.

Among the stars on show that day was Mark Coleman, the 20-year old Blarney man impressing in just his second championship game for the Rebels.

His performance got us thinking; just who are the other rising stars to keep an eye on this season?

And to rate them, we’re introducing The42‘s Holy Moses-ometer.

The what?

The Holy Moses-ometer which gives each player a rating out of five on the basis of how likely they are to have RTÉ’s Marty Morrissey shout ‘Holy Moses’ during a game this year. Simple.

To mark its fifth season as sponsor of Hawk-Eye, Specsavers is offering sharp-eyed GAA fans a chance to win All-Ireland Final tickets.

All you have to do to be in with a chance to win is unlock all 32 counties in our new Look for Longer game.
