Abstract

Australian rules football is a challenging contact sport requiring high levels of fitness and skill. In the last two decades, hamstring strain injuries have remained an ongoing problematic issue, constituting a large proportion of soft tissue injuries sustained in the elite Australian Football League (AFL).1 The predominant injury mechanism for hamstring strain injuries is sprinting,2 and fatigue may play a role because higher injury rates have been reported during the later stages of soccer and rugby matches.3 4
