Gabbett, T, T King, and D Jenkins. "Applied physiology of rugby league.." Sports Med. (2008): n. page. Web. 27 Feb. 2013. <http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18201115>. This article describes the correlation between the human body, training time, and injury. The article discusses how as the rugby season goes on; the player has a greater risk for injury. This is due to over training and therefore causes the player to become fatigued. When the body is fatigued and it does not have as much endurance or agility, the risk of contact injury increases. This article is from a website called pubmed.gov; it is associated with the US National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. Because of this, I believe this website to be credible. The article also sites many studies to be used as proof in the article that injury occurs later in the season for rugby players. There are three authors for this article. They are on the Brisbane Broncos Rugby League Club in Queensland, Australia. They have written several articles each about injuries in rugby. Being on a rugby team, they have firsthand experience with the injuries related to rugby. This article will be very useful in my review essay. I found it to a credible source and it ties in perfectly with my research on how the human physiology is related to injury in rugby.
Gabbett, T, D Jenkins, and B Abernathy. "Physical collisions and injury during professional rugby league skills training.." Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport. (2010): n. page. Web. 27 Feb. 2013. <http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20483661>. This article, Physical Collisions and Injury during Professional Rugby League Skills Training discusses a study that was done on professional rugby players. The number of collisions a rugby player encountered during training was recorded, as well as the intensity of the collision, whether it was mild, moderate, or heavy. The down time between games was also taken into consideration....
