Abstract

The purpose of this study is to compare speed, agility and power between forwards and
backlines among rugby players. A total forty subject (N=40) from Uitm Pahang Rugby
Players, were selected through purposive sampling. The study was using an ex post facto
design to conduct this study. The study compared of the result of post-test of30 meters sprint
speed test, Illinois agility test and standing long jump test. All subject will perform only two
trials for each test. They will perform for speed in the first day. The next day, they will
perform a power and agility test. This study used an independent sample T-test for data
analysis. There is significant difference of hypotheses testing for the 30 meter sprint speed
test which is forward (M=0.520, SD=0.411) and backline (M=0.484, SD=O.215);
t(40)=3.503, (p=O.OO). Hypotheses testing for Illinois agility test which is forward (M=18.33,
SD=O.828) and backline (M=16.55, SD=O.634); t(40)=7.640, (p=O.OOO). The last hypotheses
testing for standing long jump test which is forward (M=1.923, SD=0.486) and backline
(M=2.449, SD=0.208); t (40)=-4.448, (p=0.000). To conclude, this finding suggest that
backlines have greater fitness component in term of speed, agility and power than forwards.
