In brief - you can no longer roll in behind a ball. You must always hit cushion after striking your object ball unless you pot a ball.
We also clarified another rule. If you pot the white ball on your break off shot there is No 2 shots to your opponent . Your opponent has control of the table and the game continues as normal. The exact rule word or word is also in our previous blog.

We love the Banter here in the Newry Pool League.
