Here are the positions in 15 a side rugby:
1 Loose Head Prop
3 Tight Head Prop
4 Lock or Second Row
5 Lock or Second Row
6 Flanker (Blind side)
7 Flanker (Open side)
8 Number 8
9 Scrum Half
10 Fly Half Backs
12 Inside Centre
13 Outside Centre
15 Full Back
As you can see there is a split into two distinct units in a rugby team: the Forwards and the Backs. The Forwards contest for the ball with the opposition Forwards and then give the ball to the Backs who try to get past the opposition players to score. For these reasons Backs tend to be a little lighter than Forwards so they can run fast.
Letâs look at what each position needs to do:
Tight Head Prop
Loose head Prop
Locks (or Second Row)
Open side Flanker
To see where the players stand on the pitch you will need to watch matches as the positions change according to what is happening in the game. You may be able to find diagrams of the positions if you put "Positions in Rugby Union" into Google.
I hope this helps you
