Here's How The Hurling Penalty Rule Could Be Changed Again
By Mark Farrelly

Today's Irish Examiner reports the Hurling 2020 committee are in favour of introducing a new rule for penalties in hurling which would see the goalkeeper face down the taker alone.

After huge criticism of the 'Anthony Nash rule' in this year's championship, the committee set about trialing alternative methods of penalty taking behind closed doors. Their favoured option appears to be a one-on-one penalty with the taker striking the ball before the 20-metre line.

The committee, made up of Liam Sheedy, Frank Lohan and Pat Henderson are also expected to propose reducing the number of players on the line for close in frees to just three.

Will this put to the penalty debate to bed?
