Abstract

Enhancing sprint performance is a fundamental component of performance required for success in many individual and team sports such as American football, rugby league and rugby union. Furthermore, sprinting with a ball in hand (ball carry) is of importance for rugby players since scoring a try is associated with players sprinting or accelerating towards the try line while carrying the ball. However, to our knowledge, no attempt has been made to determine the effects of sprint training with ball carry on the sprint performance of rugby players.
