Kerry manager Peter Keane has revealed that he is a fan of the offensive mark.

The main reason for Keane’s fondness of the trial rule is that it has been very effective for his team and in particular Tommy Walsh who have benefitted greatly from it.

Walsh has flourished under Keane and his scoring tally has been aided by making a number of offensive marks during the FL1 campaign so far.

Kerry take on Mayo in round six tomorrow evening and Keane will be hoping to use the rule to their advantage once again.

“Of the rules that they were discussing there were five rules that were being implemented, it was probably one that I would have looked at the start and thought it had the most potential for success,” Keane told the Kerryman.

“I suppose I am only looking at our own games. Tommy has done well with it. I am mot sure, I suppose look, the GAA will sit down at the end of the league and analyse that one and see what way it has worked, because there’s other teams and they are getting no success out of it.”
