TIPPERARY FORWARD JOHN O’Dwyer is on course to claim first place in the race to be top scorer in the 2012 Bord Gáis Energy All-Ireland U21 hurling championship ahead of next Saturday’s final.

The Killenaule forward has amassed 1-25 from his three encounters in the Munster championship and enjoys a five-point advantage over Laois attacker Stephen Maher.

A number of players who are featuring in the decider in Thurles still have aspirations of overhauling O’Dwyer but will require a sparkling scoring display. Kilkenny’s Kevin Kelly needs at least eight points to edge to spot, his teammate Ger Aylward – who has amassed all of his tally to date from open play – requires a haul of nine points – and fellow Cats attacker John Power must strike 11 points.

On the Clare side, Clonlara’s Cathal O’Connell is their best hope in joint fourth place at present with 0-20 with Tony Kelly (0-12) in ninth place and Conor McGrath (2-5) in joint tenth place.
