The role of the scrumhalf during a defensive scrum is to frequently put as much pressure on his/her opposite number.

The scrumhalf should stay low and once the opposition scrumhalf is pushed or tackled to the ground they will have to release the ball.

 If the ball does make it cleanly to the flyhalf the role of the scrumhalf is then to protect the blind side and then drops back to the sweeper position.
