No. 9 is the scrumhalf and this is the "quarterback" of Rugby. He/She is the go between the forwards and the backs.
From Wikipedia: "The term quarterback has its origin in Scottish Rugby, wherein backfield players, according to their customary distance behind the forwards, were designated 'quarter back' (i.e. ¼ of the way back), 'halfback', and 'fullback'."
Positions get their names by where they are at on the field. Walter Camp invented many of them, including "quarterback." Others, including "halfback" and "fullback," were borrowed from soccer and rugby.
