Scrum-half / Half-back. Numbered 7, the scrum-half or half-back is usually involved in directing the team's play. The position is sometimes referred to as "first receiver", as half-backs are often the first to receive the ball from the dummy-half after a play-the-ball. This makes them important decision-makers in attack. Forwards

The former Queensland and Australia scrum-half’s individual accomplishments is highlighted by his record three Golden Boot awards (2011, 2013 and 2015), four Dally M Player of the Years (2005, 2007, 2014 and 2015) and four Dally M Half-back of the Years (2005, 2007, 2009 and 2015).
The scrum-half (7) (also known as the halfback) of the team that did not commit the forward pass, knock-on or cause the ball to go out of play over the touch line puts the ball into the scrum through the tunnel formed by the front rows of each set of forwards meeting. When the ball bursts or the referee interferes with the ball, the team that had possession at the time is the one to put the ball into the scrum.
The half back will then feed the ball towards his own side and the scrum will finish once the half back picks up the ball. There is no initial hit in a rugby league scrum and there is no pushing. Due to this players won’t bother dropping their body height very low and players will only loosely bind to each other.
