Both got their hands on Liam MacCarthy three times though, with Tony Sull the Hurler of the Year in 1990 and Ben the RTÉ Man of the Match in the 2005 All-Ireland final. Lehane needs to rip it up all season to be considered on their level.
Murphy has an enviable collection of medals, from being top-scorer in the last minor All-Ireland winning crop in 2001 to those senior All-Irelands, county glory with Sars and Fitzgibbon Cup captain at LIT.
Where the current Cork team can’t compare with the 2003 to 2006 side is in defence. O’Sullivan, Wayne Sherlock, Pat Mulcahy and Brian Murphy were no-nonsense in the extreme while John Gardiner, Ronan Curran and Seán Óg Ó hAilpín was a classic half-back combo.
