3/4 Wing - rôle and morphology
Winger is a station of Rugby to XV. We finds two wingers in a team and the holders generally carry the numbers 11 and 14 (wingers left and right). It is a player belonging to the three-quarters.
The wingers are located at the end of the line of attack. Their main offensive role is to conclude the action initiated by three-quarters. These are finishers and generally better markers test team. The wingers are often the fastest players on their team. Indeed, in this post, speed is paramount because it must allow them to infiltrate into the space not occupied to mark a test, some wingers are even capable of running the 100 m in less than 11 seconds. Offensive phase, they must not confine itself to their wings and can go on the other side to create some excesses to pass defense. If they are particularly known for their marked tests, they must be of good defenders and platers to defend their counterparts but also to prevent the keys (to the extent possible) that allow the opponent to occupy the land.
Because of the isolation of the wingers in the line of attack, players playing in this position have less direct challenge opponents. For a long time, their power not requested, is especially speed determined player in this position. The tenure of heavier and extremely powerful players like the New Zealand Jonah Lomu (which weighed up to 118 kg and run the 100 m in less than 11 seconds) in this post, in the 1990s, has significantly changed the profile type of wing. Now, modern wing has often tended to be both fast and strong, as are often originating in Tonga, Samoa, which exploit then their inertia can no longer be stopped once Islands players launched. Jonah Lomu was the most striking example of this new type of winger, symbolizing the transformations involved passing professional rugby. It remains more modest stencil wingers more playing on their tone and their supporters into small spaces like Shane Williams and Vincent Clerc.
