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.
