actually leads me to a serious idea, an intelligence stat, eg carter would have a high stat.
dont know what it would do, maybe affect decision making and positional play?
Isnt that just awareness?
And I think most forwards would have way more "Intelligence" than the backs.
So in-game, forwards are more intelligent or "aware" than backs?
Well considering that a forward has to do more in game they would be more aware. But it really depends on how you would define being "aware"
A simplification would be
Forwards have to do rucks, mauls, tackle, run, scrums, lineouts, kickoffs.
backs have to run, pass, kick, tackle
