The best full back of the last 15 years, as voted by our judging panel, is Cork's Diarmuid O'Sullivan.

When you ask a GAA fan who "The Rock" is, they are not going to say Dwayne Johnson. They are going to say Diarmuid O'Sullivan.

The Rock is a legend on Leeside.

Captain of a National League winning team at the age of just 19, O'Sullivan was a natural leader, starring at full back when Cork ended a 9 year absence to win the All Ireland title in 1999.

The Cloyne clubman was part of a brilliant defence that would then win the Liam McCarthy Cup back to back in 2004 and 2005.

How many times did we see him burst out with the sliotar and make a brilliant clearance.

The Rock scored once of the greatest points of all time, a You Tube moment from 2001 when he shouldered Limerick's Jack Foley out of his way and in one movement, struck the ball over the bar from 100 yards.

A winner of 4 All Stars, Diarmuid O'Sullivan owned the square and is number 3 on our team.

Congratulations to Jerry Whelan who picked Diarmuid and who has won the county jersey of his choice.

Tomorrow we will reveal the left corner back on the 15 for 15.
