The Forwards

Props and Hookers
The front row is like a large boiling pot which does the job of providing foundations for every play. Anyone who plays in the front row is typically characterized for having brute strength.

The Second Row
The second row athlete, also known as the lock forward, is tall and very strong. Mobility is not expected, but if the lock forward has it, this becomes a big advantage. The power and the strength of the lock forward comes in very handy during a scrum.

Number 8 and Flankers
These forwards are known for their agility and speed. These players have to defend and do all the support work for the forwards. They have to also participate in a scrum, whenever it is required of them.

The Scrum Half
Also known as the half-back. The scrum half athlete is someone who provides the ball to the players behind. There job also requires them to put the ball into a scrum.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Backs

The Flyhalf
The Flyhalf needs to have a very good vision, amazing hand eye coordination and superb kicking ability. They are able to interpret the game and make decisions of what happens next (i.e. what player to pass to)

The Centers
The athletes with good instinct fit this position. They are also very good tacklers. These athletes are back-up to every position. A center needs to be agile, fast, quick thinker, strategist and always ready to scrum down with the opponent team. There are two types of centre, inside and outside.

The Wingers and the Fullbacks
These athletes are supposed to have excellent striking ability. They are responsible for fast counter attack and good many number of tries on touchdown. These athletes have a flair for catching the high ball.
