RTE's hurling documentary series 'The Game' has been mesmerising fans over the last two weeks and Monday night's episode featured Waterford star Austin Gleeson's incredible solo goal against Cork in the 2017 Championship.
The footage was re-mastered and analysed in dramatic slowmotion, showing off the skill and precision of the Mount Sion man. It also showcased his brute force as he continued to balance the sliotar while bulldozing his way through Cork defenders.
Twitter was drooling over the goal on Monday night:
