I'm trying to maintain some semblance of realism when I play WL. I started out on Easy using all Welshmen with Cardiff. Henson's a beast as well as Shanklin. Stephen Jones is decent but he got hurt a lot. I found that I faired better when Henson wore the number 10 jersey. I just completed Normal using all Englishmen. My next goal is to use all Kiwi's on Hard. Of course, I'm practically playing with mostly Internationals. But I try to retain most of the original players from the club I choose, ie -- my Cardiff side consisted mostly of that club's players and the same for when I played as London Wasps. And my NZ side will be either Crusaders or Blues. As much as I'd like to have a mixture, I find it unrealistic to have an entire team of international ringers (not to say that anyone else who subscribes to that strategy is wrong, it's just my way). I just find it more satisfying to conquer the world with players of the same national background. And no, I will never ever try it with all American ruggers, that is unless there's an unlockable level of gameplay called Extremely Easy. I'd also like to try it with the French, the Irish and the Boks. Give it a try. It might make your campaign more interesting.
