box art ...

NZ - Joe Rokocoko
Aus - George Smith
SA - ????
US (and Canada) - ????
Eng (and UK?) - Jason Robinson
Fra - Serge Betsen
Ire - Gordon D'Arcy

... I presume the last 3 are correct as they are the 3 players pictured on a single cover on the easports.co.uk rugby page and Betsen is pictured on the french easports rugby page as a cover player, so I'm guessing the other 2 european players will feature for their respective countries

anyone know South Africa's cover player yet? perhaps the US will have a northern hemisphere combination (as on easports.co.uk)?

I disagree. It's all about marketing and using a player who is familiar to the intended audience in a country would increase sales. You have to think would French fans be attracted to a game with Jason Robinson or JW on the cover over one with Betsen on it?

I understand the point you're making about the IRB world player award winner but the IRB and EA have no direct links on this game.
