Abstract: 
Introduction: Chronic athletic groin pain is commonly experienced in a range of football codes including soccer (Holmich et al. 2014) and gaelic football (Murphy et al. 2012). Much debate surrounds the specific aetiology of AGP but several authors have implicated, at least in part, abnormal movement control and loading in and around the hip and pelvis during play (Rabe et al. 2010, Pizarri et al. 2008). Movement control during change of direction cutting is of particular interest as it is this dynamic movement that is frequently associated with groin pain development (Falvey et al. 2009). No previous studies have attempted to describe the key characteristics of cutting mechanics that may be prevalent in AGP populations, that is, what are the potential biomechanical diagnoses that exist in this cohort.
