MA Martin: Once again the keeper wasn't tested, had no shot to deal with from a limp Clonmel attack. Good kick-out. 7.5

Briain Murphy: Yet another sterling performance from the youngster in the corner. Keeps getting better. Does the basics brilliantly. 8.5

Aidan O'Reilly: Mr Dependable was up to his usual high standard in blotting out any threat to goal and didn't mind going for a gallop up field either. 8.5

Alan Cronin: Goes about his business with the minimum of fuss and maximum effect. Was again on top of his game with another solid outing. 8.5

Kevin O'Donovan: Added a point to his growing tally of scores, having achieved his primary objective in a half-back line that is developing nicely. 8.5

Stephen Cronin: Again read the game magnificently, cutting out passes with intelligent reading of the play and making it look all so simple, which is clearly not the case. 8.5

Jack Horgan: A man of the match contender in the first-half, when he tormented Clonmel with his raiding down both flanks. Quiet in the second, but job done. 8.5

Alan O'Donovan: Won his battle in the key midfield area, gobbling up the heavy ground with surging runs to link play at either end. 9

James McDermott: Partnered O'Donovan in helping Nemo gain ascendancy in the crucial middle third of the pitch. Used all his experience to telling effect. 9

Barry O'Driscoll: The skipper worked tirelessly along the right flank, working back to help bring the ball out before usually picking the right pass. 8

Paul Kerrigan. Scored a point. Missed a goal chance and kicked five wides, but never shirked in his responsibilities as a team leader and was always willing. 6.9

Colin O'Brien: One of the key components in the Nemo way of playing. Once more picked up plenty of breaking ball around the middle and worked his socks off. 8.5

Mark Cronin: The youngster showed his class by causing all kinds of problems every time he had the ball. Was fouled a lot in the first-half which led to pointed frees. Scored three himself. 8.5

Luke Connolly: The man-of-the-match kicked five points from play, including a beauty from a standing position to bring up the dozen after 51 minutes. Unstoppable in this kind of form. 9.5

Conor Horgan: As manager Paul O'Donovan said when the ball sticks with this guy he's top class material. Contributed much to the cause. 7.5

Nemo emptied the bench in the second-half with substitutes Ciaran Dalton and Kevin Fulignati getting on the score sheet. Ronan Dalton, Brian Twomey and Kieran Histon also came on with time almost up.
