With the cynical play in Tralee I'd be expecting more of the same on Sunday but is there anything in the rules for pushing in the back or impeding a kickout.
Reading through the rules I suppose a push in the back is only punishable by a yellow on the second offence. A black card is only for a pull down but I suppose a push down is different. Would you see this as a black card offence? Very much down to interpretation and how obvious it is I suppose.
I can't see anywhere mentioning penalty for slowing a kick out. In the hurling rules it is mentioned and I think the penalty is to bring the sliotar 10m forward. I wouldn't see that as much of a punishment and I'd even go to the extreme of giving a free kick from the half way line which I suppose isn't a 100% scoring chance.
