Groin strains can affect every player, especially those inclined to pivot and change direction quickly. The start of the season is prime time for the problem as a lack of conditioning increases susceptibility to the injury, which usually occurs when the adductor muscle is stretched beyond its limits. The term 'groin strain' is a bit of a misnomer, as the stabbing pain that results is a sign of muscle fibres being torn, completely at worst.
