Positions in rugby

Rugby players are divided into backs and forwards and within each category there are sub-categories that define a player’s role on the field. The rules apply the same to all players but they have different responsibilities to ensure their team’s success in the game of rugby. Backs are generally smaller and faster and do the creative, agile things that we all come to love when watching rugby. Their grace often drives the scoring and gets the fans wild. The forwards tend to do more of the gruntwork. They can be found in the scrum getting down and dirty with the other big guys and trying to free up the ball for the backs to work their magic. Forwards are often the larger players and can be enforcers or dole out punishment to backs that have the audacity to try and score. Everyone on the field gets to have fun though.
