STARS FROM THE Roscommon footballers and Tipperary hurlers got the nod for The Sunday Game’s man-of-the-match awards this weekend.
There were incredible scenes as Roscommon rallied to dethrone Galway and win the Connacht SFC on Sunday.
Anthony Cunningham’s side produced a stunning second-half display to clinch the title after trailing the Tribesmen by five points at half-time.
Padraig Pearses defender Niall Daly scored one point to help the Rossies to a 1-13 to 0-12 victory, which secures a 23rd senior Connacht crown for the county.

Meanwhile, Tipperary made it four wins from four in the Munster SHC round-robin series. The Premier County overcame the reigning All-Ireland champions Limerick with an efficient performance in Semple Stadium.
Seamus Callanan’s 38th minute proved to be the difference between the sides as he finished with a tally of 1-4 from play.

Tipperary and Limerick will meet again in the provincial decider on Sunday 30 June where the Shannonsiders will have home advantage at the LIT Gaelic Grounds.
Callanan and Daly were both rewarded with The Sunday Game’s man-of-the-match awards for their efforts.
