German term or phrase: Flugpass vs. Standpass
Einer davon könnte wahrscheinlich mit Scrum-half pass übersetzt werden (aber welcher und wie heißt der andere?)
Definition für Scurm-half pass:
This is a specialist pass by the scrum-half to clear the ball from the forwards out to the backs. It must be done quickly, before the opposition defence pours through, and in a single movement from first touch of the ball to its release.

Definition Flugpass:
Mit Hilfe dieser Variante kann ein Spieler - zumeist der Gedrängehalb - einen am Boden liegenden Ball schnell und weit spielen, gleichzeitig aber auch dem Tackling des Gegners entgehen. Der Schulterdrehung folgt die Gewichtsverlagerung auf den vorderen Fuß, mit dem sich der Spieler kräftig in Richtung des Passempfängers abstößt. Während der daraus resultierenden Flugbewegung führt der Spieler den Ball unterhalb seines Körpers von der Hüfte ausgehend so weit wie möglich nach vorne, wobei die hierzu erforderliche Streckbewegung der Arme das Vorschnellen des gesamten Körpers nachhaltig unterstützt. Der Ball verlässt schließlich die Hände des Passgebers in der vom Grundpass her bekannten Art und Weise.

Definition Standpass:
Unter einem Standpass versteht man einen häufig vom Gedrängehalb ausgeführten Pass, mit dem ein am Boden liegender Ball sofort gespielt werden kann.

dive pass vs standing pass
Explanation:
by the look of it.

Dive pass:
This was very much in vogue in my playing days but the standing pass has overtaken it mainly because of the fact that the scrum-half remains on his feet and thus in play. Most players can pass longer distances standing than diving but I have seen some prodigiously long dive passes. I was interested to see a few scrumhalves using the dive pass in the recent World Cup games. It is useful when you are in a tight spot and have people reaching out for you. Your dive takes you away from them; it is also useful when you are chasing a ball moving away from you on the ground. It is a quick pass which you can spin or not; you would spin the ball if you wanted distance but a quicker shorter pass would not need spin.
