in Rugby union the scrum half is the one who passes out of the back of the scrum and rucks and mauls. they can pass the ball very long distances and are usually quite small. to be honest i dont really know as i am a prop so this is a general description. feel free to change this answer(i'm sure you were going to anyway)
