Short for "Scrum-half", which is a Rugby union position. The scrummie's job is to choose how and where the ball will be played in each phase of play and take control of the ball from set pieces (lineouts and scrums), rucks and mauls. Comparable to the quarterback in American football.
Andy Gommarsall plays as scrummie for England.
