New rule changes have come into effect from the 1st January 2014 which includes a black card for cynical fouls. A black card will be issued for the following 5 offences, which will result with the player being sent off and replaced with a substitute player.
If a player is on a yellow card and then issued with a black card, this will be the equivalent of a red card and the player is sent off and not replaced.
Mayo GAA fans won’t get to see the new rules in action until our first fbd match against NUIG, which has been put back until next Friday 10th at 7.30pm in Mc Hale Park. You can view the full list of rules which we published in a previous post last November.
