    Great post. I think the bás has to be below a certain size doesn't it according to the rulebook? I think I read a few years back that a lot of outfield players hurleys these days are illegal. Could be wrong on that. But Hegartys there looks wrong. Christ you'd never mishit a ball.

    Hegartys scoring achievements in All Ireland finals over the last 3 years will probably never be surpassed. The ability to 'up' his game for the biggest day of all is a testament to him. Joe,TJ,Kelly ect..none have done his numbers from play in All Ireland finals . What I like most about Hegarty is he knows how good he is and isn't shy about it. He also caught 2 big balls when Kilkenny were threatening to pull ahead last year. One he flicked to Morrissey to restore Limericks lead.

    Hes gone games where he was relatively quiet. Fintan Burke did a good job last year but Limerick weren't great in that semi. Hegarty was consistently excellent last year in Munster.

    I'm not so sure about that, phenomenal figures indeed but you couldn't say that they will never be surpassed. He has scored 3-14 in total from play in his last three finals. Seamie Callinan for example scored 3-10 from play in his last three finals, its very impressive but not unbeatable. Hurling in general is becoming a higher scoring game as it evolves so all these records could look a lot less impressive in 20 years time.
