Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney debate the players who can make it happen — brought to you by 65Hurls.com.

Who is the most creative player in hurling?

TJ Reid, as ever is one of the first names to be discussed in our ‘Best’ series, and once more the Ballyhale star takes centre stage here.

Noel McGrath and Cian Lynch were two of the main men spoken about in the debate on best midfielders, and again their ability to use to ball to bring others into play features.

Of course, it’s not just players with a silken touch and great vision who get into the shortlist.

We also feature the battering rams of modern hurling: Kilkenny full-forward Colin Fennelly certainly falls into that bracket, as does Patrick ‘Bonner’ Maher of Tipperary.

Certain counties provided a sparse number of creative players, and it led Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney to ponder whether this explained their lack of presence at the business end of the season on a regular basis.

Dublin, Clare, Wexford, Waterford and Cork all featured in that particular part of the debate, with their more defensively-positioned players tending to feature as creators.

Given Limerick’s total-hurling approach to hurling, it’s little surprise that a number of their star men from across the field were spoken about.

The same was said of Waterford club side, Ballygunner, who like to move the opposition around the field with their intricate passing.

A number of Tipp men are also front and centre in the discussion, with quality players from Noel McGrath to Ronan Maher, and a few more in between, on the menu.
