    Happy to see a rugby game in development. The fact that it is Rugby League means it will just fail like its predecessors. Rugby League is not really popular in South Africa. Only 7 national club teams and it gets no coverage by SARU. Some great Rugby League players in the early days like Tiaan Strauss, but not enough people know anything about Rugby League in SA to make this popular to succeed, should do OK in Aus, NZ & UK. Buying this would be similar for the average South African gamer to MBL, NFL & NHL, alot of fun to play, but why don’t understand the specific sports’ ins and out. Still waiting for that perfect rugby game to be developed to rival the likes of FIFA, NBA, NFL etc…

      From what I understand, these Rugby League Live games have a pretty big following in Aus and NZ, making the sales look pretty good. It will undoubtedly be “unsuccessful” in SA, because it probably isn’t even on any of the distributor’s lists here (I will try find further info on that), but it should be worth ordering online. I agree though that SARU (or perhaps a new body to be formed) should push Rugby League in SA – we could definitely thrive in the code.

      As for the games, I really enjoyed Ruby League Live 2 – I still play it often. I would obviously love a great Union game, but it isn’t an option at the moment, so I tend to play RLL2 a fair bit. Some great gameplay mechanics that help capture the speed and dynamic of the real sport.
