The mechanics of human gait require control of movement in all 3 anatomical planes in order to safely and efficiently navigate our environment. Movements in the sagittal plane are often the primary focus of locomotor research because walking most commonly occurs with a forward orientation and many

Motor competence (MC) can be commonly defined as proficiency in fundamental motor skills (FMS), which regularly includes locomotor and object control skills. 1 A broader concept of MC is the performance in all forms of goal-directed motor tasks that need coordination and control of the human body

corroborate similar findings from senior rugby union. 6 The lower locomotor activities in forwards are likely because of the higher collision rates (0.56 [0.23] vs 0.36 [0.17] n·min −1 , ES = 0.99), 7 differences in player physical characteristics, 8 , 9 and tactical roles they undertake 10 compared with
