Technically Number 8 is also a flanker ..... although I'm amazed that when I put in Lock it accepted it for Second Row

Not enough distinction between positions....1 and 3 are different, as are 6 and 8, even though their generic name is the same.

So you should accept tighthead prop and loosehead prop respectively, ditto blindside and openside flankers.

There are other names for fly half which are correct - outside half or stand-off half are both terms used for the no 10 spot.

Centres should be inside centre (12) and outside centre (13)

Wingers should be left wing (11) and right wing (14)

And note spelling of centre - most people doing this quiz will spell it the British way.

Centre. Always has been, always will be. Not to accept the original spelling is ludicrous. And in Wales, No 10 is an Outside Half. Also, lock is a widely recognised term for the second rowers.

I tried "number eight" and "eight", and was baffled why there was no recognition. Could you include these terms, please?
