Indirect Free

What is the penalty if a player scores from an indirect free?

Never seen it happen but in this weather with the ground so hard a player could kick it forward and ball bounces, touches no other player and goes over.

I looked at the rule book and can’t find the answer. All I can see is a player cannot score from this free but it doesn’t say what happens if they do.

Is it a hob ball where the free was taken or on the 20m line? Or is it a free out from sqaure, 13/20m line or where the original indirect free was?

Throw ball where the free was taken.

Cheers. What rule would that be under? Couldn’t find it.

I was thinking it was a free out as the ball was fouled, similar to a square ball.

What happens if a is blocked by a defender and THEN hits the Ref before going out? 45 or wide?

Throw ball from where ball hit ref.

What happens if the ref doesn’t see any of this because he is being chased by a Jack Russell?


Not in the rule book but a directive was issued by Croke Park when this query was raised a few years back. Will look for it.

Same logic to be applied where the free taker fouls the free by striking it a second time - throw ball.
