Over the last 40 years, The Sunday Game has brought the GAA football and hurling championships into your homes.

And now, we want you to help us choose the best XV in each code of the TV era - picking the best XV from All-Star winners of the Sunday Game era (1979-present)

Cast one vote for your All-Star hurling full-backs of choice below or email teamselection@rte.ie to make any more considered contributions. We will be debating these teams across our platforms in the coming weeks.

Brendan Cummins' handsome victory in the All-Star goalkeeper poll is assured and we inch up the pitch to the full-back line. 

The 1980s and 1990s were heralded as a wonderfully democratic era in hurling, with Galway, Offaly and Clare making long awaited (and in the latter two cases, entirely unanticipated) breakthroughs.

For Offaly, who won all their provincial and All-Ireland titles in that two-decade span, Martin Hanamy and Kevin Kinahan picked up three All-Stars apiece in the full-back line.

Two defenders from the '80s vintage, Eugene Coughlan and Pat Fleury, collected a couple of All-Star gongs themselves. 

In silverware terms, Galway were the most successful team of the 1980s, emerging as the only side to win three Liam MacCarthy Cups.

While it is the half-back line of the late '80s that has hogged most of the historical limelight, two members of their formidably physical full-back division, Sylvie Linnane and Conor Hayes, did join the club of players on three All-Stars.

Clare's emergence, after years of morale sapping, spirit crushing disappointment, was the great romantic story of the mid-1990s. 

Their much-feared and respected full-back Brian Lohan was one of the most individually decorated players of the era, collecting four All-Star awards. Anthony Daly and Liam Doyle did both win all-stars at corner back, but were more frequently deployed at half-back.

The mid-1990s were an unsettling and bewildering time for hurling's traditional aristocracy. Between them, Cork, Kilkenny and Tipperary failed to even reach an All-Ireland semi-final from 1994 to 1996, an unprecedented situation.

But from 1999 and 2012, the ancien regime would be restored to the summit of the game. Indeed, the 'big three' would win every All-Ireland in this time-frame.

Brian Cody's Kilkenny accounted for the vast bulk of these and they frequently dominated at the end of season awards banquet. 

In the full-back line, Michael Kavanagh, Jackie Tyrrell and Paul Murphy were honoured four times at the All-Star ceremony, while full-back Noel Hickey took home three gongs. 

Skipping back a step, the first All-Ireland winning captain of the Cody era, Willie O'Connor, scooped four All-Stars, albeit most of those were gathered in the comparatively underwhelming 1990s, his first award coming in 1992. 

This brings us on the tricky matter of excessively versatile players. Understandably beloved of managers, they have been the bane of many an All-Star selection committee as they wrestled about where to place them. 

JJ Delaney won just the seven All-Stars across his glittering career, winning four in the half-back line and three in the full-back line. 

He was named in the full-back line in 2006, 2012 and 2014. We've decided to lump him in there for your consideration. Should he fail to make the team here, he will be eligible for selection in the half-back line. Think hard on this one. Tommy Walsh, on the other hand, who won the second of his 7,000 All-Stars at corner back in 2004, is emphatically more of a half-back and we'll leave his nomination til then.

Brian Corcoran is another awkward one. The Cork great hit the national consciousness in three distinct waves.

He burst onto the scene as a 19-year-old corner back in 1992, sensationally becoming the youngest player to win the Texaco Hurler of the Year award, even though an otherwise ageing Cork team were beaten in the All-Ireland final.

The Rebels dipped into the doldrums in mid 1990s, before the return to the big-time later in the decade. By then, Corcoran was a dominant and unyielding centre-back, probably the most influential player in the game as Cork re-gained the All-Ireland title in 1999. Corcoran was once more honoured as Hurler of the Year. 

And then there was the glorious final act, Corcoran coming out of retirement to win back to back All-Ireland titles in 2004 and 2005, winning an All-Star on the edge of the square in 2004. We've forwarded him for possible inclusion in the full-back line. As with Delaney, if he doesn't make it, he will still be eligible for nomination as a half-back. 

Elsewhere for Cork, who haven't had an All-Star in the full-back line since Brian Murphy in 2006, Diarmuid O'Sullivan was the most decorated player of the past four decades, collecting awards in 1999, 2000, 2004 and 2005.

Other multiple winners for the Rebels include Martin O'Doherty, from the all-conquering 70s team, and Sean O'Gorman, who won two Al-Stars relatively late in his career in 1990 and 1993.

Tipperary's Padraic Maher was another to win an All-Star in the full-back line but for this process, his nomination belongs in the half-back line where he's an All-Star tour regular. 

Tipp, as in the late 80s-early 90s, were more renowned for their forward division, but Paul Curran, Cathal Barrett and Ronan Maher have all collected multiple all-stars, the latter just earning one in the full-back line but his performances were so striking in 2019, his inclusion is set. 

Outside the big three, Noel Connors, Sean Finn and Daithí Burke have won multiple all-stars in recent years, the latter being selected four years in a row. 

Result: Brian Corcoran, Brian Lohan and Diarmuid O'Sullivan won the most votes from the public.
