Pádraic Collins, better known as Podge, is back on the inter-county hurling scene this year having concentrated sole with the county footballers last year. Podge's father is the current football manager and his brother is also on the team.
Podge stood out in the minor and U21 grades for Clare and made his debut for the seniors in 2012.
A year later he played a huge role in securing an All-Ireland for the Banner County after a replay victory over Cork. He was nominated for Hurler of the Year and won his first All Star that year.
He's one of the most exciting players around and covers every blade of grass for Clare.
