'the rugby players' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both people as well as being plural nouns.
Maybe you can see a link between them that I can't see?
'point to a faulty pass' is the wordplay.
'point' becomes 'w' (W is an example).
'to a faulty' indicates anagramming the letters.
'pass' with letters rearranged gives 'asps'.
Can you help me to learn more?
