i find the rucks are "ok" in hard difficulty - if you keep it in close to the pack you should get the ball back.... EXCEPT! when you are playing england.... i play as south africa - so i am used to playing aus, nz, in trinations. but when it comes to playing england in the world cup final i was sooooo frustrated. even keeping the ball close doesnt work - i think i had less chance of getting it back than gowing wide england just kept putting up up&unders, my guy catches it (surrounded by about 20 teammates), gets tackled and turns over the ball. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR why is this the case? i have had no other complaints playing any other teams on hard difficulty!
