Following recent rule changes, rugby league teams can now make 12 interchanges per match from four named substitutes. Players can also be ‘‘sin binned’’ for infractions. It has been suggested that players perform at higher intensities upon their return (Meir et al., 2001: Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, 15, 450 – 458). Precisely what players should do during their inactivity is unclear. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of active and passive recovery on subsequent performance.
