Scrum-half – Rôle and morpholophy






Scrum halves form the all-important link between the forwards and the backs, and are invariably at the centre of the action. A scrum half is normally relatively small but with a high degree of vision, the ability to react to situations very quickly, and good handling skills, as well as the ability to spin the ball with great ease off both hands.

They are often the first tackler in defence and are behind every scrum, maul or ruck to get the ball out and maintain movement. They put the ball into the scrum and collect it afterwards; they also are allowed to stand further forward than other backs at a line-out to try to catch knock downs from the jumper.

It is also not unusual to have talkative scrum-halves in competitive situations.In some cases, though technically illegal, most scrum-halves will subtly alert the referee to fouls and infringements committed by the opposing team.

fly-half - rôle and morphology

A fly-half is crucial to a team's game plan. The fly-half is usually the one who calls set moves, or makes tactical decisions. Fly-halves need to be quick-thinking in a game, such is the speed at which a situation can deteriorate, and need to be able to communicate with all the backs and adapt them to the attacking or defending situation. Usually, the fly-half is the kicker of the team, a role often shared with the centres or fullback. Many fly-halves are goal kickers, and make most kicks for the team, whether it's tactical, or for touch.

3/4 center - rôle and morphology

Centres need to have a strong all-round game: they need to be able to break through opposition lines and pass the ball accurately. When attack turns into defence they need to be strong in the tackle. Usually the two centres are divided into outside centre and inside centre, though sometimes teams play with left and right centres.

The inside centre has recently seen a development in its role. Now, they share many qualities of the fly-half, for example, kicking and distribution. They must also be a very good tackler, and usually lead a rush defence if it is called. For example, the current Australian team often interchanges fly-half and inside centre regularly during the course of the match. In New Zealand inside centre is referred to as "Second five-eighth".

A good centre will be one of the most versatile players in the game: it is easy to switch from there to the wing, fullback, or fly-half. They vary in physique, which usually affects their game plan. A big centre will be used for crash balls or switches, whereas a smaller centre may change his game to become a more fly-half related centre. The outside centre also sees two roles. They are the "rapiers" that are given the ball, normally via the fly-half or inside centre, to make breaks through the opposition backs before offloading to the wingers after drawing the last line of defence. The first type of outside centre is the attacking one. This type makes them faster and very agile, almost like a winger. The second is the defensive, who draw attention away from the wingers to try and give them space. A good mix of the two is what most teams look for.

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.

Lexicon of Rugby / Full Back - role and morphology

Suite aux nombreuses sollicitations des rugbymen des régions Anglophones, je vous propose de redécouvrir le lexique du rugby version anglais.


Full back is a Rugby Union. There is a back by team, who typically wears number 15.

It is the last bulwark before line hit but it should not be limited to only defensive tasks and must have molted attacking. There often indented to approve balls hit to the foot by the opposing team but it can make its contribution to the offensive team bringing the redundant: it said that it "fits" in line with three quarters. Tactically, its position is important because, by its position, he saw all players and is therefore best placed to give guidance to the other three quarters.

Players playing in this post are generally larger than the wingers but less than the forwards including to intervene upon receipt of the candles. Their running speed must also allow them to be the last rampart on opposing three-quarters attack happened the first curtain. Intelligence game and the equanimity are particularly important for this position because the rear is obliged to intervene as last Defender (to identify key under adverse pressure or a candle) but also as first raiser when he decided to re-launch the hand for a counterattack or use the game at the foot. Have a good kick is therefore necessary to position both defensive offensive phase. In some teams, the back can also type penalties and transformations, usually half-open task. Because of the multiplicity of the functions of his post, there may be multiple profiles back. Some players specialize in set foot in the image of Percy Montgomery or Gavin Hastings, others on the reminder by hand as Christian Cullen, and others have a very complete profile in all areas of gaming. The role requiring mastery of all aspects of the role of three-quarters back, it is not uncommon that rear changing to other positions in his career. Similarly, some players evolve back after having played at other positions in line with three quarters. Some rear are therefore sometimes with half opening converted (often having a good game to the foot and a better vision of the game) or wingers (whose speed is requested on the reminders) as Christian Cullen or Jeff Wilson even centers repositioned, often providing a larger physical size on the veneers) such as Matt Burke and Gareth Thomas.
