A good block. Note the bad striking technique, the stick being pulled from behind, instead of from 12 o'clock. This results in a slow weak strike, which is probably why the defender had time to block.

Poor blocking. Stick not on the ball and so gets broken by the strike.

Poor blocking. Player isn't looking at the ball and probably damaged their stick. Good way to get injured.

Dreadful blocking. The stick will only be in the right place to stop the ball for tiny fraction of a second. However, the chances of someone getting a broken hand are very high. This is a common sight in camogie. In hurling it would get a yellow card at least. The player in green should be coming in with her stick near horizontal so that it is on the possible path of the ball for as long as possible.
