    That is absolutely shocking!!! Audience waving flags as a new feature? What is this? A rugby game for those who still live in the 90s??

      It seems as if they haven’t yet figured out that they are not the first people to make a rugby game. Rugby 15 looked so bad it could well have been made in the 70s let aalone 90s it really is a massive problem HB and Bigben have to look at games such as fifa and nba 2k and realise how far behind they are in gameplay graphics and general game modes available to compete with major sports games. And that should only be the first of their concerns.

    Just seems like they have put a rugby world cup template on Rugby 15 from on that information. Also a couple of lies in there I know for a fact South Africa 2nd best team in the world won’t be in the game as confirmed by the South Africa Rugby Union and likleyhood is that Australia (current 4th) and New Zealand (1st!) won’t be in it as well as all three are due to be in Tru Blu’s Rugby Challenge 3 set to come out in September as well. Dissapointed!
