Waterford football manager Benji Whelan says that there needs to be clarity about whether the five new playing rules will be trialled in the National League.
The GAA have confirmed that there will be a review of the proposals on January 19 following a meeting with the GPA on Wednesday but Whelan feels that a decision should be made sooner
Waterford are back in pre-season training ahead of the new campaign and the Kilmacthomas man is encouraged by the response from the players so far
