Lee Chin stepped up to the plate with a Man of the Match display in Leinster's Railway Cup hurling victory over Connacht in McDonagh Park, Nenagh, on Saturday afternoon last.
Following the red carding of Colin Fennelly, it was Chin who ran the show from the centre-forward position contributing 1-4 from play, as they eventually saw off Connacht on a 1-14 to 1-2 final scoreline.
Wexford defender Liam Ryan also turned in an excellent display. Playing out of left full-back, the Rapps clubman was one of the outstanding defenders on view.
It was not so lucky for Brian Malone. A second half substitute, the Shelmaliers defender, saw his Leinster side go down to a late Connacht goal, as they went under 2-17 to 1-18.
Leinster will now play Munster in the hurling final in Semple Stadium, Thurles, on Sunday afternoon next.
