    I was flicking through the manual and it said something along the lines that IRB has made it so if there is a draw after extra time they will have a drop goal kickoff, I understand why this would be essential for gaming purposes but is this ACTUALLY what is going to happen if there is a draw? I understand penalty goals being in football because of the low strike rate but rugby? I mean, I always feel ripped off when a football game goes to penalties, imagine in a rugby game where you know that an extra few minutes could win the game fair and square ala WC 03 and all the extra time.

    yeah i also saw that in the game

    if it were to happen, god forbid, where do the players take their kicks from?

    same spot or various designated position in the oppositions half?

    i guess i'll have to try it in the game and see what happens, although i'm finding kicking drop goals in rugby 08 is harder than in 06

    Go to practice and you can do a shootout there, but it's too easy.

    Actually, the rule was in place for the 2003 World Cup too.

    Brodizzle, it's already been said that extra time is played before the shootout, as well as it being stated in rules post in this thread:

    i. Extra time - following an interval of 5 minutes, extra time of 10 minutes each
    way (with an interval of 5 minutes) shall be played;

    ii. Sudden death - if the scores are tied at the conclusion of extra time, and
    following an interval of 5 minutes, then a further extra time of 10 minutes
    maximum shall be played. During this period the first Team to score any points
    shall be declared the winner (sudden death);

    iii. Kicking competition - if after this sudden death period no winner can be
    declared, a kicking competition will be organised between the two Teams as
    described in the section below. The winner of that competition shall be
    declared the winner of the Match.

    Oh okay, it seems my memory of the disastrous 03 final slightly scews the time, in my mind the extra time lasted forever....but it seems that it finished just BEFORE sudden death...

    NZ won an U19 final against Australia i think in 2000 after a drop goal shootout, so its been used and trialled in the past, no big if about that. better than sharing the trophy eg Thames Valley club final.
