The game is great. Although the controls are hard to get used to at first, they are easy to pick up, and soon you'll be hitting the opponents line with clever runs and long passes.

They have added many more moves in to the game which make it much better and with a tutorial "Rugby 101" that tells you everything you would need to do if you don't follow rugby or you just not to sure on to the rules. Then another great feature before you can play a tournament or a match you do some basic challenges like learn how to do a diving tackle these challenges are pretty fun and well worth doing.
