Do you agree with the man-of-the-match from yesterday's All-Ireland semi-final?

Déise midfielder Jamie Barron got the nod.

WATERFORD ARE STARTING the countdown today to a first All-Ireland senior hurling final appearance since 2008.

They took that significant step in yesterday’s semi-final win over Cork and it was one of their best performers all season who walked away with the man-of-the-match award.

Fourmilewater club man Jamie Barron was the choice of RTÉ pundits Anthony Daly, Eddie Brennan and Brendan Cummins on The Sunday Game last night.

Barron weighed in with 2-1 from play in a customary all-action performance as he again found the net crucially for his county, just like he did in July’s qualifier success against Kilkenny in Semple Stadium.

It was all Waterford players nominated for the award after the game in Croke Park but special mention was given to the performance of Cork’s Patrick Horgan, as he weighed in with a return of 0-12.

Darragh Fives and Austin Gleeson were also in the running but team captain Kevin Moran must have been unlucky not to feature in that conversation.

But do you think the right decision was made and Barron was the star man?

Let us know.
