The GAA are reportedly set to scrap part of an experimental rule change to Gaelic football designed to allow only four players in midfield to contest a kick-out.
The proposals, issued last month, include a restriction on consecutive handpasses, an expansion of the mark, a sin-bin and a forward-only rule for most sideline kicks.
However, the kick-out rule, which has been tested in early-season college games, has been deemed unworkable without slowing the game to a standstill, according to an Irish Sun report.
Instead, a simplified experimental change will be proposed, which forces kick-outs to travel past the 45m line - effectively an extension of the existing 21m rule.
Goalies will be allowed to take kick-outs from the 21m line, as opposed to the 13m line.
There will be no restriction on where players can line up for those kick-outs.
It's planned that the rules will be trialled on an experimental basis during the 2019 Football League and then be considered for approval for the 2020 Championship.
