Has many flaws but gives a jist if the real game

You automatically become slower after breaking the line and the player you have just ran past is suddenly usain bolt compared to you. The opposition do nothing besides kick to touch for penalty’s and also your players run around like headless chickens until instructed to do something and despite showing up an hour early to the ruck you still don’t tend to win it against the opposition. And I think big hits and smashing into a player or running over the top of players should be included in this game as it is £5 to get. I would play it more if it was cheaper or a multiplayer game. Poor show as Rugby Nations 15 and 16 made it look like it was going somewhere.

Excellent Game

I’m addicted to this game, it’s so much fun. However there’re two things that it would be good to see. Often teams use a player other than number 10 for goal kicking. It would be good to be able to choose which player you use. Secondly on a related point there aren’t as many penalties as in the real game and it would be great if there were a few more place kicking opportunities.

Great Game just a few flaws

Quality game that could do with a few changes:
-Make it easier to keep your own ball and make it harder to steal opposition ball
-Shouldn’t it be a scrum for a forward pass not a penalty?
-Sometimes players running back in defense tackle when they are in a massively offside position
-I think if you time the tackle horribly wrong a penalty should be given for high tackle
Have more penalties given away so it makes the game more realistic ie if the opposition team has already 4 men in the ruck and you charge in with 4 players a penalty for in the side or playing on the floor
-Mauls from 5 metres out just don’t work when the should be getting scored pretty much 90% of the time
-Don’t have the wind suddenly change as i take my kick
If i face the first half with 15 wind coming towards me i want to have that advantage in the second half not to find the wind has suddenly died down or even worse switched back to face me
- in career mode some autumn internationals would be nice and maybe play offs or a heineken cup would be fit
Please read this cos it’s a bloody good game with some what should be easily fixed things that need to be sorted xxx
