Do you agree with The Sunday Game's man-of-the-match selections?

Conor Lehane and Patrick Durcan scooped yesterday’s awards.

THE MUNSTER HURLING Championship started with a bang in Thurles yesterday as Cork stunned defending All-Ireland champions Tipperary.

Despite being outsiders entering the clash, the Rebels came out on top by four points in a thrilling encounter.

On a day where several players shone, The Sunday Game panel named Cork forward Conor Lehane as the man-of-the-match. His personal tally was 0-10 — five of those from play.


Lehane’s teammate Mark Coleman and Tipperary midfielder Michael Breen were also nominated by Jackie Tyrrell and Anthony Daly, who joined Des Cahill in studio.
