The scrum-half is the link between the forwards and the backs.

They can expect to make plenty of passes to team-mates.

Scrum-halfs need to have the safest pair of hands on the team - as well as a brilliant rugby league brain.

They are the player who makes the important passes, and need to make the right pass at the right time.

The scrum-half is the player who feeds the ball into the scrum.
