The GPA say they will review the proposed changes to the All Ireland Hurling Championship.

The revamp would see the Leinster and Munster Championships contested as five team round robins, with each side having two home games, and two away.

A third route to the All Ireland quarter finals would exist through a provincial qualifier group containing Westmeath, Laois, Kerry, Carlow and Antrim.

The Players Association will release their feedback prior to the proposals discussion by Central Council on June 17th.

In a statement, the players' representative body said: "The GPA received the GAA Hurling Championships Reform Proposal Today, 6th June at 3pm. We have immediately commenced a review and consultation process with our hurling squads and relevant GPA working groups. We will release the consolidated feedback prior to Central Council on 17th June."
