Five-eighth
FIVE-EIGHTH or STAND-OFF is one of the positions in a rugby league football team. Wearing jersey number 6, this player is one of the two half backs in a team, partnering the scrum half . Sometimes known as the 'pivot' or 'second receiver', in a traditional attacking back-line play the five-eighth would receive the ball from the scrum half, who is the 'first-receiver' of the ball from the dummy-half or hooker following a tackle . The role of the five-eighth is often to pass the ball away from the congested area around the tackle, further out along the backline to the outside backs, the centres and wingers, who have more space to run with it. Furthermore, players in this position typically assume responsibility for kicking the ball for field position in general play. The five-eighth is therefore considered one of the most important positions, often referred to as a 'play maker', assuming a decision-making role on the field
