A sin-bin period of ten minutes to be introduced for players receiving a black card.

All sideline kicks must be played forward, unless inside the opposition 20-metre line

And the application of the mark is to be extended for a clean catch from play inside the 45

Central Council will decide which rules will be trialled in the provincial pre-season competitions and the 2019 Allianz Leagues.
