Scrum and Maul pushing... can't get it right

    What I find hard is pushing defensively in mauls and scrums. I use classic 2 because it's the only one that allows for a kicking game (drop goals are easy once you get the hang of it) but I can't get the defensive pushing for mauls or scrums as I always get pushed back. On offence I sometimes get turned past 90 in the scrum and whatever way I push won't stop it... I think maybe the directions are tied to the broadcast/sideline view and that's my problem. Any thoughts???

    Need some help guys... any body has the answer?

    yep.
    and i don't understand another point : if we suppose that we have to push up to... push, when this is done while we're attacking, it enables an attack strategy. that's not very practical.

    I haven't had any problems with pushing, so I'm not sure what to tell you guys.

    I play on Classic 2.



    If you don't get a good push, release and push again.

    Repeat.

    Pushing is always the direction on the screen.

    Classic up/down
    side left/right
    broadcast diagonal or which ever way needed. changes during game.

    Same as moves with R3 button.... sidestep, charge, etc.
    It is always based on what would be forward on the screen.

    confusing but i hope it makes sense.

    yes, i should have said that, too


    the real trick, though, is to relese and push again if you get driven back

    And yes when i start getting driven back i release and then re push the L3 in direction needed.

    yep
    but when you push the up button, the scrum may advance, but then, it also enables the "classic" strategy, doesn't it ?

    does it matter if you don't have an analog joystick ?

    Oh, man. I can't comment on the PC version.

    PS2 all the way for me.
