Relationships between trunk morphology and strength with non-contact lower limb injuries in elite rugby league and Australian football players

      Background: Non-contact lower limb injuries (NCLLI) are common within the National Rugby League (NRL) and Australian Football League (AFL). Smaller lumbar multifidus at L5 (LM L5) cross-sectional area (CSA) and lower levels of trunk and hip extension and knee flexion strength have been associated with increased NCLLI risk in AFL players. However, such associations have not been reported in the NRL. This study aims to explore relationships between NCLLI, trunk morphology and isometric trunk and hip extension strength in NRL and AFL players.
