Okay, I couldn't manage to buy the game, so I have to wait until Monday. However, I hired the game today (unfortunately on PS2, the Xbox versions were all taken). Anyway, I played my second match, it was against Wales, I was NZ. I kicked off with Spencer, and immediately they put on a good 20-25 metre return. They flung the ball out wide a couple of times. Didn't result in anything. So they flung it out wide again, and popped a short pass back inside to Henson who raced through the middle, Where the hell is my FULLBACK!!! (turns out I had him selected when the ruck was formed. D'oh.) Try to Henson under the posts. 11 minutes gone. 0 - 7. So, kicked off again, McCaw charges forward and YES!! Jumps up, and plucks the ball out of the air. God Damn that looked sweet. So, I start stringing a few phases together, making regular busts up the middle. We have a few lineouts before We throw the ball out wide, Umaga has it 10 metres in from the left hand touchline, fullback to beat, pops the pass to Rocketman who sprints up te touchline, try. Carter converts. 7 - 7. 30 minutes gone. Wales kick off, under no pressure I use the jump button, It looks cool when I pull it off. I didn't pull it off. But I retain the ball. Now for the best try of the game. I'm on my own 22 line, I pass left but I hadn't allowed my 1st 5 to get into position, the ball goes rolling back into the in goal are where rokocoko picks it up. He charges out, passes to Carter, to Umaga, spots a gap, takes it, to Howlett on the 22, charges towards the Halfway line, passes to Spencer who gets tackled on the Halfway line. I win the ball, Marshall grabs the ball and passes to Umaga who is charging in at pace he runs towards the fullback and then does a long pass to The Rocket (again that Umaga-Roko combination) who sprints up the touchline and does a massive dive in the corner. Converted try (just), 14 -7. Halftime. Second half, It was all NZ ball, but just couldn't turn all of that possession into points. Had a lot of good Lineouts and scrums and broke through the defense a lot, but just couldn't seem to score. Nearly the end of the match, and I pass the ball to Spencer who trys a run, but gets caught, I look up at the clock, 80mins. Damn, should've kicked it out. Damn damn, Wales stole the ball. Damn damn damn, Wales go blindside where theres no defenders and burn up the touchline, and because I'd just had the ball, Mils wasn't back into his position, so, there was the fastest Welsh player on the pitch (a winger with some stupid welsh name that everybody else has) with no defenders in front of him, and with McCaw and Umaga chasing him, 60 metre (In the corner thanks to a brilliant Umaga ankle tap). 14 - 12. Conversion successful. NOOOOOO!! 14 -14. 80 minutes. ********.
