Conor Lane positive about proposed experimental rules for Gaelic Football

Conor Lane positive about proposed experimental rules for Gaelic Football

By John Harrington 2018 All-Ireland Final referee, Conor Lane, doesnt think the proposed experimental rules for Gaelic Football will place too much of a burden on referees.No, I dont, said Lane today at the launch of the Referee Development Plan 2018-2021.Look, it's like every year, what we're given we'll just go out and perform and do what we're told to do. If it's hand-passes we'll do it, if it's an extra mark we'll just have to buy into it and do it.I'd be positive. Whatever we're told to do we'll just do it. It won't be an extra work-load for us, no. It's just another challenge that we'll embrace. I'm looking forward to it.The experimental rules are currently being trialled in matches between University teams and Lane says the feedback from the referees whove officiated those games has been very positive.Lanes own view is that if the new rules encourage teams to play a more direct and attacking brand of football theyll be a boon for the game.Its positive for me, he said. I'm from Cork and hurling would be my first love. From refereeing hurling in Cork when

John Higgins has 'lost appetite' for snooker after World Championship losses

John Higgins says he has lost his appetite for snooker after finishing runner-up at the past two World Championships.The 43-year-old Scot reached the final of the China Championship last month and is into the second round of the English Open after beating Li Yuan.But Higgins said: "I'm struggling to get up for playing and practising."I've lost in two big world finals in the last two years and it's knocked the stuffing out of me a little bit."Despite having won four world titles in a stellar career, Higgins says the defeats in 2017 and 2018 by Mark Selby and Mark Williams have eaten away at him."I've not been practising, I've not been playing. I missed the first three tournaments of the season, then played out in Asia," said the world number four."I lost the first game to Ryan Day in the Shanghai Masters and then I was out there for two weeks with my little brother, just basically a holiday really."I was surprised I got to the final of the China Championship because my play was terrible."I'm sure it'll come back, at some point during the season, but right now it's
