    Hi guys,



    I need your help. I am struggling to translate the rugby positions of players in different languages to English, or numbers.



    Mainly it is Italian, French, Spanish, Japanese and Russian that i am having trouble with. The rest are ok.



    So, if anyone here speaks Italian, French and Spanish in particular i would like to know the names of the positions 1-15. I know some, but am not sure what 3a linea means and it is difficult to understand for me.



    Can you please list them like this..



    1 Pilier etc

    2 Talonneur etc

    3

    4 / 5

    6 / 7

    8

    9

    10

    11/ 14

    15

    Thanks dudes..!

    I put 2 and 2 together and thought Apertura might mean 'Open', like in the Opening Championship in South American football.

    Ok, so this means Spain and Uruguay are done now i guess most correct, and i have even thrown in some of the U-18's stars from Uruguay as they only have 24 senior players in the National Team.
     
  6. In Italian:

    1 Pilone sinistro

    2 tallonatore

    3 pilone destro

    4 - 5 seconda linea

    6-7 terza linea (or also flanker)

    8- terza centro

    9- mediano di mischia

    10- mediano di apertura

    11-14 ali

    12 primo centro

    13 secondo centro

    15 estremo
     

  7. In Spain they are mostly the same, but the flankers are called "Tercera Línea" (Third Row) or "Tercer Ala" (Third Wing), wings are called "Ala" (literally "wing" in spanish) and the fullback is called "Zaguero".
