5. In the game of Rugby Union, the number 10 is worn by someone playing in what position?

Answer: Both

Fly-half and First Five-Eight are the same positions, named differently in different countries.

In rugby, players are divided into a group of forwards and a group of backs. Early in rugby's development, it was found that it was advantageous to have a player/players as a link between the forwards and the backs - a half back/half forward. They became Half Backs. In the northern hemisphere (from Wales), one of the Half Backs was made to stand wider and run at the opposition after a short pass - he was the flying Half Back (later shortened to Fly Half). Other back positions were Full Back (standing behind everyone), and between the Half Backs and the Full Back stood Three Quarter Backs (Centre 3/4's and Wing 3/4's). In New Zealand, they named the players between the Half Back and 3/4's differently. Naturally, if they were between a half (4/8ths) and three quarters (6/8ths), they would be a 5/8th. There were two of these players here, so one became the First Five-Eighth and one was the Second Five-Eighth. Complicated...

8. What Agatha Christie book had to change its title twice due to the original names being deemed overtly racist?

Answer: And Then There Were None

"And Then There Were None" was originally published under a title so racist that nowadays no one would even think of using the word Agatha used. It must be remembered though that this doesn't necessarily mean she was a racist, it was just that she lived in different times. The book was re-titled "Ten Little Indians", which was also considered racist, before finally being re-titled "And Then There Were None".
