Functional roles in set play
While the functional roles in the scrum are typically set, the lineout and other set pieces have roles that can change dynamically. A good example of this is the lineout. While the props are usually lifters, the other players can be either lifters or jumpers. This dynamic role change depends primarily on the tactics and opposition. The roles in the lineout are listed below:
These roles will change dynamically from lineout to lineout and even within a given lineout.
