-after scrums, first to meet opposition
-tackle from short distance
-go for opposition half-backs
-or, if scrum is won, first forward to get out and support backs
-first in rucks or mauls (battering ram)
-at the end of line-out to provide support in case goes over
-dedicated to running forward straight and hard
-may decide to run ball blindside with flanker OR pick + hook with half-backs

offense: support ball carrier, win ball
defense: stop opposition backrow moves, create rucks (preferably over mauls), provide cover or join markers next to ruck/maul

Just reading this gives me adrenaline.
