    I'm having real problems with fitness - in season 3 (never had it before). Players who are coming back from injury seem to be permenantly stuck on a low fitness level and show no signs of improvement for months. The regular starters are about 75-88 fitness and don't improve, even when rested.

    I have two players who show in the squad view to be in the 90s for fitness, but when selected they start the game on 44/45 fitness.

    I have 2 5* physios who specialise in recovery, and 2 4* doctors who specialise in injury treatment.

    And morale is 95+ for the vast majority of the squad

    What can I do to get a fully fit 23 for match days? Any suggestions?

    And another one from me - can you guys get international jobs? I applied for England for the 6 nations and was declined because I didn't meet the requirement (1 league title) even though I have back to back premiership wins, last years Anglo-Welsh cup and the season before I won the European cup.

    At the World Cup last year I went through the teams and the best ranked nation that would give me a job was Georgia! What am I doing wrong?

    Hi
    To improve fitness include Cardio sessions in the team training rota, and swimming or hill running in the player's individual regimes.

    I hope this is helpful

    Thank You
    Hi Derek,

    Existing teams and players can be edited quite comprehensively, which is in effect creating new entities.

    Calibre can be edited in RUTM 2017 by moving the player attributes around.
    Attribute movements drive movements in calibre, not the other way round i.e. there are many attribute values corresponding to a single calibre value. So to move the calibre would not be defined as there could be many possible corresponding attribute values.

    I hope this helps

    Thanks Dave - for the record I love the game and would recommend it to any rugby fan. The international thing is incoveniant but I really play for the club rugby really, so not the end of the world. I don't know if you've managed to fix the problem of the 9 running the ball out of play I mentioned a while ago, but I haven't noticed it recently, so if you have thanks for that too!

    Hi Dave, would it be possible to implement something where at the start of a season it checks to see which teams are not geographically where they should be, and swap teams around if possible? E.g. An Irish side in in the italian league while an Italian team is in the Irish league then it swaps them back.

    Hi
    Click Rep / Int in the top right, thenselect Rep / Int Competitions and the tables are there.

    I do hope you are enjoying the game, please put up a review on Steam if you haven't already.

    Hi Please could you send us a saved game at the point this is happening please, and a screenshot. So we can look into this for you.
    Please send the saved game to customersupport@alternativesoftware.com, using We Transfer :- https://wetransfer.com/ (which is free to use), and please email us with the screenshot. We will then get back to you a.s.a.p.

    Please make the game ten times better? What use is that as feedback?

    On a more constructive note - a streamlined version of the transfer market would be better. Having to arbitrarily click through menu after menu to see all available transfer listed players seems unnecessary. Equally the no contract players have the same problem - and what list no contract players buy league? If they're not contracted surely they can't be representative of a league? One transfer list, one loan list and one no contract list makes much more sense.

    Having the advantage rule in game would be great - that must be tricky and might be impossible in th current game engine, but it is a big part of the real sport.

    Thirdly it would be great if the transfer system included some form of player interest in transfers - not just preferring whatever suitably lucrative offer they receive, but maybe some bias for a particular side/country/league.

    Finally - national teams should have their real life rules about eligibility according to which team you play for - i.e. All England players being selected from the AP etc.


    Those would be some of my suggested improvements.

    Hi Dave
    Really enjoying the game
    But it still needs work
    Could you plz make a option to group players by positions with international selection
    And add the ad-lib attack options from Rugby union team manager 2015 to the game
    And can you expand on tactics like developing your own attack and defense plan
    Plz see what you can do

    Cheers

    Hi Jeff,

    The editor in Rugby Union Team Manager 2017, is pretty powerful.
    Why not try the game for yourself on Steam, (if after 2 hours you find it is not for you, you can get a refund), especially now as it is in the Easter Sale for the next few days :- http://store.steampowered.com/app/528640/
