Yet Another Change To Hurling Penalties Being Trialled Early In 2015

Yet Another Change To Hurling Penalties Being Trialled Early In 2015
By Conor Neville Updated

We have to talk about hurling penalties again. What with the introduction of the 'Nash rule' this year, scoring a penalty in hurling became a gargantuan ask. By the end of the season, it was clear that standing over a penalty and going for a goal was a low percentage shout - a serious gamble.

The hurling review committee have come up with a possible solution.

The early season provincial competitions, the Walsh Cup in Leinster and the Waterford Crystal Cup in Munster, will see the GAA trialling a system whereby only the goalkeeper will stand on the line facing the taker.

He will stand on the line unaccompanied by a couple of corner backs.

The proposal has been put forward by Hurling 2020 Review Committee, which is being chaired by Liam Sheedy. The Munster and Leinster Councils have agreed to trial the proposal in the two pre-season hurling competitions.

What's Faster? An Anthony Nash Penalty Or A Baseball Pitch?
