John Walsh (Mullinavat) - The goalscoring hero of the 2014 All-Ireland minor triumph with an impressive 2-5 and bagged another 2-2 in this year's All-Ireland intermediate success. He raised eyebrows with a hat-trick against Ballyhale and adds attacking firepower.

Luke Scanlon (James Stephens)

The dynamic midfielder was scuppered by a shoulder surgery but played a starring role with the intermediates and is already a vital cog with the 'Village'. A bundle of skill and energy, Scanlon has the potential to be a Colm Galvin-type.

Sean Morrissey (Bennettsbridge)

A club-mate of last year's bolter Liam Blanchfield, Morrissey is a creative half-forward, central to Bennettsbridge's remarkable ascent from junior to senior ranks.

Richie Reid (Ballyhale Shamrocks)

A sub 'keeper on last year's team and younger brother of TJ, Reid was outstanding at half-back for Ballyhale. His versatility makes him a huge possibility in both attack or defence, and of course in goal.

Darren Mullen (Ballyhale Shamrocks)

Two cruciate knee ligament injuries haven't halted his progress and Mullen could be a live option at corner-back for Brian Cody with his impressive reading of the game.
