goalkeeper stepped outside the small square to take the
puck-out, it was ironic to see that Seamus Gardiner, the
national referees spokesman, had called for the penalty
to be changed (i.e. a penalty other than a 65) prior to
the Munster U-21 final. Gardiner stated “I had written
in the Munster senior final match programme that it’s a
rule that is unpopular and too severe and I was making
the argument to change the rule to a throw in on the 20
metre line. Given the accuracy of modern day free
takers, the award of a 65 is as good as awarding a
What the Rule Book Says: Technical Foul:
Rule 4.15: Infraction - To take the puck-out from outside
