Watch: The #StyleOfPlay moment of the week from the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Semi-Finals

The display of Hurling last weekend was outstanding, so choosing a standout #StyleOfPlay moment of the week proved extremely tricky!

Where do we even begin?

Two epic All-Ireland Senior Hurling Semi-Finals were played last weekend in Croke Park, and boy were we treated to a fantastic speculate of hurling.

Both matches were games that had you right on the edge of the seat, and both had to go to extra-time as four teams fought to the bitter end!

Galway and Clare will have to go again this Sunday as their match ended in a draw, 1-30 a piece. Limerick and Cork entered extra-time level, but two goals from Limerick sent the Treatymen into the All-Ireland Final for the first time since 2007. The game ended Limerick 3-32 to 2-31.

The #StyleOfPlay Moment of the Week

Normally, choosing a #StyleOfPlay moment of the week is a difficult task. This week, it is almost impossible. Over the two matches, we saw some unbelievable pieces of skills. We are used to choosing one moment, but we here at Littlewoods Ireland HQ were too torn.

First up is Peter Duggan from Clare. Their free-taker and their main man, Duggan was phenomenal in this match. This clip shows just exactly how talented he is. Absolutely outstanding!

On Sunday’s game, Limerick’s keeper Nickie Quaid kept his team in the game with this exceptional save. Watch how he puts his body on the line to prevent Cork’s Seamus Harnedy from getting a goal!

The replay of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Semi-Final between Galway and Clare will be played this Sunday at 14:00 in Semple Stadium, Thurles. Tickets are now on sale now.
