The GAA is to issue "an interpretation" of the hurling rules relating to penalties and free pucks from the 20m line after controversy during last weekend's Cork-Waterford clash.
The GAA says it will be issued as quickly as possible and before this weekend’s games.
During the Munster SHC quarter-final replay, Waterford goalkeeper Stephen O'Keefe rushed from his line to charge down a penalty attempt from Cork 'keeper Anthony Nash, after Nash had lifted the ball several metres forward from the ground.
The rules state players must remain 20 metres away until the ball has been struck, but confusion has arisen as to whether the ball counts as having been struck when it is first lifted by the attacking player or only when they make contact for a second time after lifting.
The GAA statement in full: Arising from concerns in relation to implementation of the Playing Rules of Hurling in respect of the taking of penalty pucks and free pucks from the 20 metres line, the Management Committee of the GAA will recommend Interpretation of Rules to Central Council to address these concerns. It is envisaged that this process will be completed as quickly as possible and in advance of this weekend’s games.
