Can you guess what the most common injury in professional rugby is? In this exclusive series offering a rare glimpse behind the scenes at Leinster Rugby, Garreth Farrell, Head Physio explains why hamstring and ankle sprains are the bête noire at elite level and tips to try and avoid.


With professional rugby players getting bigger, fitter and stronger the propensity for injury is greater than ever, so the role of the team Physio is a very important one.

Farrell gives fans a fascinating insight into his role and how his job is as much about injury prevention as it is injury care and rehab.


In this behind-the-scenes series of videos capturing Leo Cullen and his backroom team, Leinster Rugby fans will enjoy exclusive insights into the most successful Irish team in domestic and European competition.
