Abstract

The aim was to examine if lower-limb kinetic and kinematic asymmetries are transferred between sprint running and countermovement jumps in a group of university Rugby Union players. Eight university Rugby Union players (20.31.6 years) participated in the study. Three-dimensional kinematic and force platform data recorded sprint runs and countermovement jumps. Across the two movements there was a substantial and moderate level of agreement for the ankle ROM and peak normalised GRF, respectively. No significant difference between inter-limb kinematic and kinetic variables at the group level. Lower-limb asymmetries may be transferred across dynamic movements and are present at the individual level.
