- Slow mode kicking enabling placement of pinpoint punts, bombs, chips and grubbers

- Slick passing system making cut out balls and offloads easier

- Realistic ball retention and turnovers at rucks

- Detailed match and player statistics

- Detailed competition leader statistics

- Half lengths ranging from 7 to 40 minutes

- Differing international tournament formats

- Powerful in game Editor

- Ability to share your rosters with other gamers

- Dynamic gameplay that flows like rugby match should.

We really hope that you will enjoy "Rugby Champions"

Exciting stuff.

It is an International management game, or does it also include domestic teams?

Hi The game has many features as listed above and is more focussed on actually playing the matches, ( rather than watching) i.e. one to test your gameplay skills, so please have your joypad ready.

Good news, I hope the players can sidestep in the game as effectively as Dave has done with some of the questions so far :p

Nice

Game looks ok
If play-ability is nice I cant worry about graphics.

RC 3 did the graphics things first but you cant pass to your wing your 10 is out of possition and cant ever run with the ball.

Loved the editor ,7's and so on ant they where on the right track , would have loved it if the listened to fans on suggestions .

A mual is crucial ,would be cool if you could drive and score , if you guess correct (drive to left x,drive middle A,drive right b)

Also you can bring it down illegally sometimes get away with it other times no

I didnt play rugby 18 i have it but never opened it as the videos looked buggy and looks like it was created in 2003

Playability is the first characteristic a video game must have, indeed, but it's frustrating a step behind graphics from the same guys who created Rugby League Live...

Rugby 18 really sucked, you saved money mate ;)
