What is the back stop's job in rounders?

the backstops job/ role in rounders is to guide the bowlers throw to the batter by cupping there hands in the appropriate ending space for the ball and allowing this to be a target for the bowler. also, if a batter misses the ball and it was an acceptable throw(not a foul ball) then the backstop must receive the ball and throw it to the appropriate post to help get the batter out. if the batter hits the ball backwards, it is also within the role of the backstop to receive this ball and walk to the back-line (as the batter by this time shall be waiting at first ready to run on when play is continued) and accurately throw the ball either to the bowler who if receives the ball will prevent runners running on to other posts, or the backstop will pass to the fielder on second base who will stump out the batter if they had decided to run on. i think i covered everything, well, hope this helps you.
