The Gaelic Players Association has branded the decision to trial rules changes during next year's Allianz Football League as "unacceptable".

According to a report from RTE Sport, GPA chief executive Paul Flynn is seeking an “urgent” meeting with the GAA to discuss the issue.

The players’ body feels that the new rule changes should only be trialled during pre-season competitions such as the Dr McKenna Cup, but they are now in place for the league after four of the five rules were passed at Central Council last Saturday.

One of the rule changes will see the restriction of consecutive hand passes to only three, with a 10-minute sin-binning also set to be imposed for black card or two yellow card infractions.

It is understood that Dublin star Flynn wrote to the GAA yesterday to request a meeting this week.
