first of all you need to have a very good pass either off the ground or other. the pass needs to be flat and accurate with a smooth spiral to it so your 1st 5 has many options and will not be put under pressure. your boxkick needs to be good aswell so that you can get your team out of pressure when the first 5 is under pressure. halfbacks need to be the talkers of the team motivating the forwards and organising the defence. halfbacks need explosive speed from scrums and rucks for short sharp burst run to get through the defence. also defence is vital around the rucks to the big forwards. halfbacks these days are almost lilke flankers so defence is very important
