almost everyone here says that it's very difficult to play against england in hard mode. 5 minutes ago, i played my first non-world league (which i play with bourguoin in hard mode) match in hard mode with NZ against england. and i beat them 31-3... and i do not use any tricks, i do not take advantage of some bugs, etc... moreover, i would like to say that 4 of the 5 tries i scored were actually very realistic. except the last one which was a lucky interception of rockocoko (wrong spelling, hu ?). and it hasn't been a hard and tough game. that was quite cool. but the main problem, to me, is that england didn't really score -> the 3 points were just due to a penalty (offside position). ia isn't good enough. i'm not making this thread to say "hey, guys, you know, i'm soooo good at rugby 2005". i just say that i wish i could play it on the multiplayer mode, because the single player mode becomes boring... thought ? ps : sorry for my english.
