The aim of this study 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 range of motion and peak normalized ground reaction force, respectively. No significant differences were observed between interlimb kinematic and kinetic variables at the group level. Lower-limb asymmetries may be transferred across dynamic movements and are present at the individual level.
