Make the most of your team!

In Rugby, as in most sports, the players are divided into groups based on a specific role they perform in the game. Below they are broken as the Forwards and the Backs (The Backs include the Wings and Fullbacks).

Each group has a set of skills found on the Skill Chart on the back of the Training Guide. Players from these groups will perform well in certain circumstances and poorly in others. Knowing their limitations will improve your chances of victory.

FORWARDS: 

These are the tough guys in your team and are there to make the hard yards! They have the body-bruising task of relentlessly carrying the ball towards the opposition tryline, forcing tackles, smashing holes, and exhausting the defenders!

The Forwards are most effective when used in small tight groups of 3 or more, known as pods. They work best when charged at defenders to create gaps for your faster Backs to exploit.

BACKS: 

The Backs combine good Ball, Kicking, and Movement skills into a fast and deadly attack. Their burst of speed, fleet of foot, and ball skills are ideal for exploiting a weakened defence. Use your Backs to get behind the opposition and gain valuable ground for your team!

WINGS: 

They say there is no counter for speed! The Wings have the task of running the ball at a blistering pace toward the Tryline. Their low Ball Skill is their downfall so always try to use them as the last player in your attack.

FULLBACK: 

Your Fullback is the most highly skilled player on your team and is a vital piece in defence and attack. He should spend most of the game patrolling the empty field behind your team to stop any breakaway attackers or tactical kicks. His Ball Skill and Movement mean you have a reliable and fast defender to sort out any deep attacks or kicks that may come his way!
