REVISED PLAYING RULES for hurling and football were due to come into play this weekend.

But GAA chiefs have today announced that they will now be pushed out to 11 April.

One-on-one penalties and an advantage law were slated to come into effect.

“It is vital that players and referees have an opportunity to familiarise themselves with changes in playing rules before they become operative,” a Croke Park statement reads. 

“Central Council has, therefore, decided to defer the implementation date of the revised playing rules until Saturday, 11 April.”

The new rules will be in place for the hurling and football league semis and final.
