Where is the update to improve the game?

Soooooo been waiting about a month for these improvements to the game but still nothing. I believe this could be an awesome rugby league game but something needs to be done already to improve the bugs.

Update: Still many things wrong with this game, the rules are wrong like kicking the ball into the in goal off a kickoff results in a 20 metre tap. There is no offside rule so when you play the ball and a player is way behind they just tackle you and stuff everything up. You don’t even get a chance to get out of the in goal after the opponent kicks the ball in goal which can get very frustrating especially when they aren’t near you and you can clearly see you have plenty of time to get out. Still has great potential to be a great game though. Have also completed the career mode multiple times and it always follows the same pattern. To get to the nrl you have to go to the titans to start off with and after that it’ll be either be Rabbitohs, bulldogs or eels then after the next 2 years it’ll either be roosters or storm. Also the fact you have to play 30 games in one season is ridiculous considering there’s only 26 rounds in the nrl, also adding byes and finals to the game would be awesome. Please update all of this stuff cause I love this game but I’m getting over having to follow the same path and playing more games then I need to as I think a lot of other people are. Thank you

Greatest rugby league game but...

I’ve read a few of the other reviews and I would like you to know that you guys have done a great job but there are a few glitches: like eg kodi nikorema takes conversions not isako of the Broncos. I think there is a little glitch that it always pauses but that’s probably my internet.
But otherwise you guys have got great gameplay besides its very realistic.

The game is ok but has some major glitches. When this happens I have to restart the match. Also, if you are in a game and go out of the app, it doesn’t pause, it just restarts. If you are playing in a season, the draw is incorrect and in career mode, once you reach 10 over, you can’t improve Howerver though it is the best league game I’ve played,
. It has decent graphics and good gam play
