Sevens Rugby Positions: Playing Center

By Rugby IQ, 03/13/18, 12:00PM CDT


Sevens is a game that one can play in any position with reasonable success at the lower levels, but as you progress it becomes a lot more specialized. 

What is required to play center?
The center is one of the most powerful runners in the game, with the ability to create opportunities for his/her teammates on attack, or even finish them on their own.

Passing well off both hands, excellent vision and decision- making are all keys to success in this position. Speed is also vital – with one
of the most important skills being tackling.
The center could be a flyhalf, center or wing in XVs rugby.
