The good news is that Ashling Thompson is back and could line out in the Páirc. Amy Lee is sure to line out between the posts now with Aoife retired.
“First of all, most of us are top of the ground hurlers. A few will plough away but the majority of them want the fast ball.
"In one way it’s fairly exciting from Cork camogie’s point of view in that we now have a team taking to the field where the oldest is 24 and the youngest is 18."
A player may use minimal contact on an opponent’s body from side-on, once they are making a reasonable effort to gain possession of the sliotar.
The referee will blow the whistle to signal a wide/score and from that point, the sliotar is back in play and the goalkeeper is free to restart the game.
A player may choose to take a quick free from their hand if they are fouled inside their own 45m line. Only the player that is fouled can take it from the hand and it is an indirect free.
A player who is deemed to be persistently fouling another player in the first instance will be noted by the referee. For any further infringement, normal rules apply.
Should a player deliberately drop their hurley then this will result in a free to the opposing team from where the foul occurred.
Any sliotar that is hand-passed directly into the net by an attacking player will be treated as a wide and therefore result in a puck-out.
A penalty must be struck from on or outside the 20m line. Only one defending player may stand on the goal-line during a penalty and shall not move towards the 20m line before the sliotar has been struck.
