The following now rules have now boon . published, but no official intimation, has vet been received that 1 they are in force: The penalty for offside, inside or outside the circle, is a free hit against the side making the breach. A free hit inside the circle against the defending team is a very severe penalty, but as a player cannot be offside in his own half r n t.ie field, such' a penalty will be a very rare one indeed. The penalty for breaches such as carrying the ball forward, kicking it, tripping, personal handling, etc., shall be: Outeide the circle, free hit for opposing team; inside the circle, breach by attacker, freo hit for defending broach by the defender, "penalty corner or "penalty bully" for simultaneous breach by two players, bully. . [ The same penalties are provided lor "sticks," with the exception _ that no "penalty bully" can bo given for a" penalty bully shall be played by the offender and any player selected by the othor team. All other players shall bo bevond the nearer 25yds line m the field of play, and shall not cross the 25vds line, or take any further part m the game until tho bully is completed. The penalty bully is fought out between tho two in tho usual manner, and if the defender sends the ball outsido tho striking circle, or tho attacker sends the kail over tho goal line, and not between tho posts, the play will bo re-started by a bully on the ccntre of tho 25yds line. In taking a penalty corner, a player of the attacking team shall have a hit from any point on the goal lmo ho mav choose, 'provided that no player shall stand within svds of the striker, and that no such hit shall be taken -within ten
yards of the goal posts. Tho New Zealand Hockey Association has ruled that no player shall bo allowed to stand inside tho five yards line at the roll-in.
