    Hi folks

    http://www.camogie.ie/news.asp?id=9544

    In the new changes above - For point 4:
    Free from the hand
    A player will now have the option to take a free from their hand if they are fouled inside her own 45-metre line. Only the player that is fouled can take the free from the hand and it is an indirect free.

    It there actually a possibility for a quick free here (playing in a full-forward who is free), or will there still be a wait for the referees whistle, nullifying a possible 'quick' free?


    Other rules below:
    The six areas that these Trial Playing Rules will cover are:
    Contact
    A player may now use minimal contact on an opponent’s body from side-on, once they are making a reasonable effort to gain possession of the ball.

    Persistent Fouling
    A player who is now deemed to be persistently fouling another player (two deliberate fouls) will be given a “tick” by the referee. If that player commits one more foul, it will merit a yellow card.

    Quick Puck-out
    The referee will now blow the whistle once only, to signal a wide/score and from that moment the sliotar is back in play and the goalkeeper is free to restart the game via a puck-out from the correct position.

    Free from the hand
    A player will now have the option to take a free from their hand if they are fouled inside her own 45-metre line. Only the player that is fouled can take the free from the hand and it is an indirect free.

    Dropping the Hurley and Hand-pass Goal (Rules 9.6.i. and 9.6.f)
    Players will now no longer be permitted to drop the hurley intentionally.

    In addition, players may no longer score a goal by hand-passing the sliotar into the net. Players may still score a point by hand-passing the ball over the bar.

    Penalty and 20-metre free (Rules 11.2 and 11.3)
    A penalty must be struck from on or outside the 20-metre line but not inside it. In addition, only one defending player may stand on the goal-line during a penalty and shall not move towards the 20m-metre line before the ball has been struck.

    The free from the hand and puckout one seem strange to me.What problem are they solving?

    Not solving a problem imo - Just trying to change things up was my assumption
