    I used to play this a lot in the 90's

    It was a top down sensible soccer type game

    did anyone else play it?

    it's available as abandonware now so i'm sure you can find it on the net somewhere.

    the game was alright for it's time but it had a few bugs if you scored a try deep in the oppositions ingoal it would bring you back and give you a ridiculous angle when trying to convert the try, also when going for a drop the ball could bounce in the field of play, then bounce over the crossbar and it would give you the 3 points.

    samoa were known as western samoa and zimbabwe were in the game. i can't remember if sth africa were in it either.

    you're right, it was campo's international rugby in australia.

    when you won the world cup, campo used to hold up the web ellis trophy... what happened in the non aussie versions?

    Western Samoa was the official name up until about 2000.

    The last time Zimbabwe were in the WC was 1991 (before I was born), therefore I can only assume SA weren't in the game. Their ban from ALL sports was lifted in '92 and by the '95 WC, Zim had lost its sting and the Cote D'ivoire were in! Come '99 it was Namibia's turn...

    Just a bit of history.
