Two moments of genius from Clare’s Podge Collins and Limerick’s Cian Lynch summed up the remarkable game of hurling at the Gaelic Grounds yesterday afternoon…
Limerick’s dramatic win over Clare in the Allianz National Hurling League quarter-final after a free-taking contest had all the drama imaginable yesterday, as the Treaty reached the final four.
There were some truly remarkable skills on display, as Peter Duggan and Aaron Gillane notched up 0-19 and 1-11 respectively. However, perhaps the outstanding displays of skill came from Podge Collins and Cian Lynch.
2013 All-Star Collins produced a sublime flick off his toe to collect the ball into his hand, the type of trick often seen when messing about on a training field, but rarely executed in a match itself.

Not to be outdone, Lynch performed the ‘John Troy’ flick to perfection, bounce the ball off the ground and into his hand.
