Glen Rovers defender Robert Downey, who was selected in the Fitzgibbon Cup All-Star 15 for his excellence with UCC, showed off his accuracy in a bottle challenge, first set to U20 forward Shane O'Regan.

Downey combined hurling with basketball for the trick shot. And given his height, he'd be more than capable at excelling on the hardwood.

Patrick Horgan has teamed with Centra for the latest in his 30-second drills, a very practical guide for underage hurlers.

Down in West Cork, Luke Meade has a nifty clip that displays the touch needed for elite hurling. 


Meade's Bandon neighbour and former Hamilton High School team-mate from their run to the semi-final of the Harty Cup, Michael Cahalane showed his crisp striking.
