Sinclair, Jonathan Kenneth; Taylor, Paul John; Atkins, Stephen; Hobbs, Sarah Jane;

Punt kicking is integral to the attacking and defensive elements of rugby league and the ability to kick the ball with high\ud velocity is desirable. This study aimed to identify important technical aspects of kicking linked to the generation of ball\ud velocity. Maxima... View more
