    Hi guys.

    I had a great idea for a patch, which i think might work better on rugby 08, but could be useful on rugby 06 as well.. if anyone plays it.

    Basically, if any of you remember Jonah Lomu Rugby around 1995 on Playstation, the game had an interesting idea for the rosters, which was a 'Legends XV' for all of the teams. So, for example, you'd have Jonah Lomu, Michael Jones and Sean Fitzpatrick in the same team, and the same for the other teams.

    This is a very possible and easy patch for 06 and 08, and i'd like to see if anyone is interested in this.

    Rugby 08 has some kind of classic replay option where you can play as older teams, like the 2003 RWC final for example and last i heard, it was fully editable.

    I plan to make a patch for rugby 06, with old style kits. This would be incredibly easy and you can play with all the old superstars.

    I'd just need help in compiling an accurate 30-man squad for each team, allowing for current stars too.

    There'd be 16 teams who would are.. England, France, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, NZ, SA, Australia, Italy, Argentina, Samoa, Fiji and Canada.

    I need help to compile the definitive lists. Could be some difficult selections for the top teams.

    Here is what i have so far.. (in no particular order)


    1 Census Johnson

    2 Trevor Leota

    3 Peter Fatialofa

    haha i didnt know frank bunce played for samoa :) but you have to have him and him in the all blacks, paired with walter little.

    the all blacks team would be pretty hard, and i am sure other people out there have a better idea than me, but since i am up at 2am ill do my top 15 with a couple of extras.

    olo brown
    sean fitzpatrick
    craig dowd
    ian jones
    chris jack
    michael jones (unless the game is played on a sundy :) )
    Zinzan Brooke
    Josh Kronfield (i know he played 7, sue me :D)
    Justin Marshall
    Andrew Mehrtens
    Jonah Lomu
    Walter Little
    Frank Bunce
    John Kirwin
    John Schester

    Dan Carter
    Grant Fox
    Joe Rockococo
    David Kirk
    Christian Cullen
    Ali Williams

    And I'd rather change Joel Stransky for Jannie de Beer but thats just my opinion.

    Thats an "old" all time team excluding the current Legends!

    Other players:
    Robbie Fleck
    Bobbie Skinstad

  7. yeah !!!! i've been waiting for such a topic for ages (since rugby 06 in fact) !!!

    i've done such things for PES on playstation, doing about 20 classic teams.

    the problem for rugby 08 is that every player in these teams are star players. i was wondering if its possible to duplicate star players in the game. it seems there are three types of them : impact, kicker and runner ...

    i could help a bit for france

    It's up to everyone who posts a team, but i wouldn't have any players from before 1987.. just to keep some continuity.
  11. Aww But Most of Wales's legends are 70's players :cryy:
  12. Fa'atau82

    Fa'atau82 Guest

    Well, if they are the cream then so be it. :)

    Doesn't say much for Wales after 1970 then!

    I was thinking more a mix of 1987, 1991, 1995, 1999, 2003 and 2007 stars. Maybe there could be a welsh 70's team in the representative sides.

    It really sounds like a good idea

    Well, i have to make it first. I'd overwrite my current 2007-08 rosterand then add the old time kits as away kits, so you'd still be able to play the new roster with a new 2007-08 home kit and play the old roster with old style kits (plain kits maybe with some small logos, with old style neck and logo).

    I need 14-16 team rosters.. some i can do myself, but we have to decide quickly on who to put in the teams for France, England, NZ, South Africa and Australia. The rest should be academic.. but i want them only going back to 1987, and maybe with 3 or 4 old time players, like JPR Williams.

    So a typical team, like England would look like.. Guscott, Carling, Catt, Wilkinson, Leonard, Morris, Dawson, Rees, Johnson, Rodber, Bayfield etc, etc.

    I will start a new topic for this, which is purely for the player discussion. Just add the 30 players who make your squad and the most popular ones will be picked. Obviously, players like Lomu, Fitzpatrick, Wood, Sella, Guscott, Campese will all be there.. its the remaing 10 reserves or so that we really need to discuss.

    If anyone wants to help with kits, be my guest. I can use the same template for each kit, just change the background colours and the logo for each team.

  15. i was wondering if it was possible to purely add some teams instead of replacing existing ones ? everybody will want to have their home league teams so an overwrite of existing teams will be a problem for us all.

    would be cool to use ozzy's roster (when the final update is released) and then add some teams. or making a patch that would add the teams to the game, so that we wouldn't have to overwrite our rosters.

    for the old players (before 87), i suggest to only use players who are in the irb rugby hall of fame.

    i'd like to help for the kits but i really don't know how to do.

    Yeah but not a fan of him and Little & I never really heard any great stories about old school 2nd 5s from the older generation. I'll stick with Carter there unless someone else knows anyone else.

  21. i would use kronfeld, marshall and merthens + jeff wilson on the starting lineup
