    Anyone know how to jump up and catch the ball?

    I seem the AI do it all the time, i've been trying out every button

    don't think there is a jump option Paddy (its one of Los' many "hates" about the game)

    I think it may just be a case of the AI deciding when it is appropriate itself... I know I've seen one of my players do it just as I switched control to him - but it wasn't down to something I pressed

    not really that big a deal. a manual jump button hasn't been in a rugby game in years.

    That wasn't manual was it? It just did it automatically on kickoffs and bombs from memory?

    I'm pretty sure it was manual in Rugby 2005.

    Quite true, circle button on PS2. If timed correctly, can be very useful.

    No on X-Box you press B and your player will jump for the ball. ( B is the button to throw to the middle of the lineout). Works quite well if timed right.

    /edit btw this is for Rugby05

    ahh ok then, so it BUtton 2 for pc

    thanks, will have a try
     
  14. Yeah ... you can jump and take the ball manually. It's not actually in the manual as we didn't think it worked very well and didn't want to make a big deal about it, but we left it in. You can do it on all 3 versions.

    a hidden easter egg. maybe that is why people don't know about because it's not in the manual. this is were button mashing skill from tekken come into play, you can find cool move by button mashing randomly and now it seem these skills can be useful in rugby as well
     
  16. Can I ask how you do it for the PS2 please Trev?

    what's wrong with rl 2 lol. best not go down that path again. st helens random button pus/mash ftw.

    dont get me wrong

    i love League more than union and RL2 is an "OK" game, but contesting the highball in RL2 is a joke, the animation just suck

    while for RC 2006, the animation is perfect and fluid

    anyway, contesting the high is not button 2, button 2 is the big hit button

    Trev, can you play tell us what button is it for the PC version?
