A rule stopping players striking penalties and frees from closer than 20 metres to goal will likely be brought in for this year's hurling Championship.
According to Martin Breheny, in the Independent, the National Referees' Committee have brought the matter to Croke Park.
The proposal means that the sliotar can be placed further out than 20 metres so that a player can still gain momentum from the lift.
Anthony Nash's penalties and frees during last year's Championship brought to prominence an anomaly which saw defenders being closer to the striker than the designated 20 metres as he could lift the sliotar several metres forward before striking.
So Nash can still strike his penalties like this, but it'll just have to be from a bit further out.
