I have the pc version of the game & I recently downloaded 'Tom Hicks' FANTASTIC player editor. I, like everyone has been very disappointed by how poor the distance of the kicks in open play. But there is a way of improving kicks. All u gotta do is change every fly halfs kicking attributes to 100. This could take a while to do every team, but if u just concentrate on the teams that u go most of the time, it won't be that big of a task! I changed Stephen Jones kicking to 100 to see what it would be like. One kick with Stephen Jones I attempted (in my own 22), bounced by the half way line and carried on bouning to the oppositions tryline!
