Ex-Kerry star Tomás Ó Sé says he’s looking forward to the possibility of the new proposed experimental rule changes being brought in for the Allianz Football League.

The rules are being trialled this month between university teams and could be implemented at the end of January if approved by Coiste Bainistíochta.

“Do you know, a lot of people are given out that they might be tried in the National League, I think it’s a good thing they might be trialled in the National League,” Ó Sé told GAA.ie

“We gave out that they are being trialled in these Mickey Mouse competitions before the National League starts. At least this way we’ll be able to say after the National League, after seven or eight games, if something has or hasn’t worked.

“We’ll have a better idea at the end if we need to make a change. My initial reaction was ‘No, too much.’ But I think they are after listening here – everybody had a voice, all clubs were asked to put in whatever motions they wanted, they took what they got, put it on a table and I think they have to be commended for trying it.

“I’m actually looking forward to it, I think a couple of them could work. I’m interested to see how the kick-out will work, with everybody inside the 45. The mark inside, I’m looking forward to that.”
